Day visitors

Day visits will recommence once coronavirus restrictions no longer apply. Please note that day visitors may not be able to attend on the same day as enquiring. We may need time to make arrangements for a committee member to accompany visitors. MBNC is a members-lead club and we regret that visitors are not able to visit unaccompanied

As a guide,  visits are easier to arrange on the dates below:

  • The AGM on the second Saturday in September
  • Our annual Open Day on the second Saturday in June.
  •  Second Saturday of the month from March to October when Committee meetings are happening
  • The last Saturday of the month from March to September when “Putting Nature back into Naturism” events are held
  • Midweek afternoons, usually on Tuesdays from March to September commencing 1pm –  weather permitting!

Outside the above days, we will do our best to facilitate your visit but cannot guarantee the availability of any particular dates or pitches. We have members who live close to Silverglades who will be pleased to meet you on site, given sufficient notice of your visit. It’s a good idea to check the weather forecast first, as members are less likely to turn out when rain is forecast.

On your first visit, you will be asked to show photo ID and proof of address. Please ensure you have these with you. We do not take copies, we just want to ensure you are who you say you are

Guidelines for Members and Visitors

Members and Visitors must bring their own water and be prepared to be self-sufficient on site. Note that unless there is a club member present there will be no access to the club house.

Take ALL litter and rubbish home. Leave the site clean and free from debris.

Whilst on the site, remain tidy and be considerate to other users

Animals

Generally we love pets, but if dogs are brought onto the site they must remain under control at all times and not disturb other site users. Any fouling is to be scooped up and taken home by the owner. Some green bags are available in the club house in case of “emergencies”, but please be responsible and bring your pet’s own!

Silverglades is a “wildlife-friendly” site so please do not bring any pets that are liable to chase or otherwise disturb the local wildlife.

Smoking

We allow smoking outdoors at Silverglades but, for safety, please use the ashtrays provided as large parts of the site will be a fire risk in dry weather.

The clubhouse is a no-smoking area.
