We have all been rocked back on our heels recently due to COVID 19 and no one has escaped the effects of this virus, whether it be self isolation, the scampering around for basic items at the supermarkets or more seriously the affects of the illness itself - we are all affected in some way. Social distancing has become the norm and as a result the BN events and campaigns have suffered mind boggling setbacks, but our health takes priority. There has been a tremendous amount of work performed during the winter months in order to accommodate a great season of events and no one has been busier than our events chief Mark Walsh. He is dealing with this superbly by updating us on this new page on the website. The campaigns Task Force have also been busy creating and promoting and are now also adversely affected, with GBSD being the worst affected campaign, with many events being put on hold for who knows how long?
- On the positive side, the news that BN have acquired the grounds of the Sunfolk club on the outskirts of the capital and intend to create a gold standard venue, is a fabulous initiative and certainly a positive asset for the future of Naturism. Read more from BN president Mark Bass.
- Our Women in Naturism Co-ordinator Donna Price is back home after a long holiday in Australia and we all look forward to her resuming her work with more positive input into the campaign by creating more articles for general press releases and of course the BN magazine.
- The Just One Person campaign is continuing via phone calls, text messaging, social media and emailing Read all about it on the BN member's forum . Have you told anyone recently about your privileged Naturist lifestyle? Carry on campaigning. #NormalisingNaturism.
- The North West region now have their own news pages within the main BN website view here, for fast flowing news updates of events, clubs and swims including naked walking etc. This can also be replicated by other regions - the tools are there and assistance readily available.
Stay safe - and hopefully we will be back to full steam ahead before too long.
