South West Region News - July 2020
Here is an update of what’s - on and what’s - not in the South West Region, plus some plans for next year already being made.
South West Region Meeting 2021.
The team has decided a meeting this year is not realistic. Therefore, tentative plans are in place for our next meeting scheduled for Saturday afternoon on 3rd April 2021. We plan to repeat arrangements in place before lockdown when we were to meet in the Bear Inn at Street before enjoying the hospitality of Larches swim and a return to the pub for good food and a social evening. More information will follow early in the new year.
News and reports from the Clubs
Torbay Sun Club
With club swims remaining closed, we are hopeful of some movement soon, after some pools opened on Saturday 25th July. During lockdown the Club has several Zoom naked quizzes thoroughly enjoyed by many members and was then supplemented by a naked chat aimed at also including the non quizzers. Additionally we had a couple of club meets at Slapton Sands to enable socially distanced contact, which was attended by many members throughout the day.
One event we are hopeful of taking place is the naked cruise on 7th August from Exmouth, Covid precautions are in place including reduced numbers but a small number of places are still available.
It certainly has been a roller coaster of a year so far and we hope that everyone remains safe and gets through this year unscathed. No events planned this year, we are going to start a fresh for 2021, better to be safe than sorry.
We are however open and busy for the rest of the season. We are in the middle of building a swimming pool but unfortunately we are behind due to covid but remaining confident to getting it completed ASAP.
We possibly have some new additions to Dolcoed as our pet geese are currently sitting on eggs so hopefully we will have 2 babies at the end of July.
Fingers crossed for a safe, healthy and profitable remainder of the season.
Planning to open in September, bookings and all further information from their website.
14th - 16th August

South West Outdoor Club (SWOC to its friends) is a basic club site located near Dorset's county town or Dorchester. It has a lovely, rural site with boules, miniten and volleyball. There is a clubhouse with kitchen facilities and a warm welcome. There is no mains water or EHU on the site but there is rainwater to flush the toilets. We'll be organising sports and activities for all ages and look forward to enjoying the peace of the surrounding countryside.
Camping is available for tents, caravans and motorhomes. A toilet is available but there is no running water or EHU.
Due to Covid-19 facilities and activities available will reflect the latest regulations and guidance at the time.
However, the SWOC club-house (including kitchen area) will NOT be open during our stay.
