    By Guest, in Eastern,

    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.
    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.

    We'd like to encorouge our members in the Eastern Region. All of our events before Lockdown were almost always fully booked with Friendly, enthusiastic people.
    During Lockdown we have seen and spoken to many of you on Zoom during British Naturism Online Events.There has been some good banter too.
    As we come out of Lockdown we hope to see you both online and at Future Eastern Region Events. As East Anglia reopens gradually.
    We would like to encorouge you if you have an idea for an event, or if you know of a good venue for an event, or if you have contacts, even maybe local knowledge of a potential venue. We would love to hear from you. Or maybe you are organising an event yourself. We would love to hear from you.

    I am sure everyone will do their best to enjoy this summer naked so maybe we'll see you soon.
    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;
    British Naturism has up to date information booklets and flyers explaining what Naturism is that are free.
    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;
    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;
    If you are new to Naturism we hope that you maybe better informed and more confident when speaking to others too.
