    Leicester in Lockdown

    By Guest, in Eastern,

    I just want to mention everyone in the city and area around Leicester that have been put in Lockdown again.
    As naturists in the area,  perhaps your off work again, furloughed or working from home. or stuck at home isolated from family and friends for even longer now.
    Maybe your participating in the online BN events or gardening naked.
    I just want to say we are thinking about you respectfully, and look forward to seeing you at events once your local lockdown has been lifted.

    Robert has announced; some news about an event in our region. Suffice to say this is going to be a popular event with people already asking for tickets.
    GOOD NEWS.
    After all the cancelled events it is good to be able to report an event that is going to take place. The visit to Fullers Mill Garden on 9th of August will take place. I spoke this morning with Annie Dellbridge, the Head Gardener. Normally the garden can easily cope with 200 people but due to social distancing numbers have had to be reduced. Initially we have a limit of 50 people but they do hope to allow us to go higher once they have some experience of opening in the current situation with Covid 19. 
    This a great event that will support two regional charities, These are East Anglian Air Ambulance and Fullers Mill Garden.

    Here in the Uk there are around 4 million people who have done a skinny dip or go about nude at home. The population of East Anglia is around 4 million people. But not all are nudists, or naturists, or skinny dippers. 
    The BN Eastern Region Area is huge and stretches from Oxford in the west of the region to Lowestoft on the East coast a distance of 175 miles, and from Holkham beach on  the North Norfolk coast down to just outside London to the M25, a distance of 125 miles. So our Eastern Region is massive. It can be a bit of a challenge getting to some events at the far edges of the eastern region.
    Large parts of the Eastern region are sparcely populated . Suffolk and Norfolk are cases in point, so naturists are few and far between, so many travel long distance just to meet up with other naturists.

    Hi Everyone
    Sometimes, you may find that in conversation with family or friends the subject of nudity comes up.
    So to help us talk about nudity and naturism  confidentally, its good to be well informed and have support tools at our disposal.
    So here sre just a few tools to help out;
     
    Literature;
    British Naturism has up to date information booklets and flyers explaining what Naturism is that are free.
    https://www.bn.org.uk/store/category/5-bn-promotional/
     
    Conversations and Experiences
    Sometimes, you have had a good conversation with someeone whom maybe interested in Naturism and you are excited and want to tell someone what happened. Well British Naturism has the forum thread you can use named;
    Just One Person;
     
    The Law
    It maybe that a non naturist has just asked if being nude in public is against the law or not, and you want to be correctly informed about the laws on nudity, so you can accurately explain them to your listener.
    British Naturism has provided a legal guides referring to Nudity in Public to enable you to know your rights as a naturist in Public;
    https://www.bn.org.uk/files/
     
    When you do talk with other people about naturism or nudity its good to be relaxed and just naturally explain why you enjoy taking your clothes off as if you were talking about any other subject of conversation.
    Its helpful to mention the benefits of being naked that you personally find in your life.
     
    Scientific Evidence
    Dr Keon West a Psychologist, published his findings from a recent study of clothed and unclothed people. He found that people when naked in a group of other naked people were more likely to have increased levels of self esteem and body confidence. Here is a link  to the published Paper by Dr West;
    .https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/00224499.2020.1764470?forwardService=showFullText&tokenAccess=K2XXNEDGJ5JSV8YB3JNB&tokenDomain=eprints&target=10.1080%2F00224499.2020.1764470&doi=10.1080%2F00224499.2020.1764470&doi=10.1080%2F00224499.2020.1764470&doi=10.1080%2F00224499.2020.1764470&journalCode=hjsr20
    If you are new to Naturism we hope that you maybe better informed and more confident when speaking to others too.

    This Saturday is the start of The Great British Take off. There are several events planned. The cost is only £3 which will be going as a donation to the British Heart Foundation.
    The events are: here
    Personally I have booked a place for Saturday mornings fitness class. At 10am. Should be fun and tiring🤣🤣
    Its still not to late to take part in the events, so I urge everyone in the eastern region to take part in some way and support the charity too. I hope to see our region members on Saturday via Zoom.
    You may like to have Pimms on the lawn. Its up to you which event you choose so lets get naked and help the British Heart Foundation and spend zoom time with our fellow naturists..
    Looking forward to seeing everyone.

    Hello to our members and member clubs.

    Following guidelines from BN EC, we regretfully need to cancel our AGM,
    planned for 5th April at Broadlands. Government guidelines for COVID-19
