Silverdale Saturdays

MBNC held the  first Silverdale Saturday of 2018 today. The weather was poor (too wet to do any grounds maintenance apart from flattening a few molehills!) so we settled for an indoor buffet provided by 2 of our local members from Arnside. About 12 members were  present, plus a prospective member from Preston.

We’ve also relaxed our rules slightly so the first visit is now free for non-MBNC members (good news for our visitor from Preston who is now due a refund!)

Our next Silverdale Saturday will be on 14/04/18 and we’d love to see some new faces then! Or if you can’t wait, just DM me or call/text 07854056138 and I’ll arrange a visit for you

Naturism needs you!

Morecambe Bay Naturist Club is a friendly, landed club a few miles north of Lancaster, adjacent to Silverdale railway station. Our site, ‘Silverglades’, occupies ten acres of sheltered south facing slopes screened from the outside world. A mix of woodlands, glades, lawns and legally protected limestone pavements, located in the Arnside and Sliverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We are a short distance from the Leighton Hall estate, and next to the RSPB Leighton Moss nature reserve, both worth a (clothed) visit.

Although we have plenty of Nature (wild meadow, butterflies, red and fallow deer, marsh harriers), we don’t have enough Naturists! This may be down to the club having few facilities, but I’d urge anyone in the Northwest to come along and see what we do have to offer, hopefully some of you will impressed enough to join us!

I live a couple of miles from the site and as I’m self-employed I can often arrange to meet visitors at short notice (the site is padlocked). So, come along, have a look and see what you think. A day visit costs only £5 for a single (£8 for a couple or family unit). Overnight (camping) fees are a little higher. If the sun doesn’t shine, you won’t be charged just to look around the site.

First visit of 2018

I made a quick visit to Sliverglades today, to introduce a prospective member and to check for storm damage over winter. A few large branches were down, and lots of small stuff, but nothing major. The moles have been busy on the lawns though. Nothing a few hours of work can’t put right

Summer isn’t over yet!

It was such a gloriously sunny day here in the Arnside and Silverdale AONB that I thought I would pop over to Silverglades. I’m glad I did as the site looked lovely in the bright sunshine and I even managed some sunbathing!
