Attending as a prospective member:
Your first visit is free, and your second and third visits will be chargeable, please refer to the Fees Table for costs
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.
Your initial visit must be prearranged and accompanied by a committee member (this is a condition of our lease). The remaining two visits can be accompanied by an ordinary member of MBNC or a committee member.
If at all possible, please try to arrange your first visit for the second Saturday in the month, between March and October when it is likely there will be a committee member present. On other days, we have members who live close to Silverglades and who will be pleased to meet you on site if given sufficient notice of your visit
After three accompanied visits to Silverglades you may be accepted as a probationary member and may then attend the site unaccompanied. Probationary membership lasts 12 months after which you will become a full member. Probationary and full members have the same membership rights
Probationary membership may occasionally be extended beyond 12 months, for example in the case of a member who has not attended during their probationary year
Full members gain admission to Silverglades by their Membership Card and a security code. Full members may bring guests to Silverglades provided the appropriate Day Fee is collected
Attending as a Day Visitor:
Please note that visitors cannot be accommodated on the same day of enquiring. We need a few days notice to make arrangements for a committee member to accompany them. MBNC is a members lead club and visitors are not allowed on site unaccompanied
Given the required notice, prepaid visits to Silverglades by non-members may be arranged. Please note however, our lease requires a member of MBNC to be present day/night when there are visitors.
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 if 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 arrival, 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
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.
We allow smoking outdoors at Silverglades but, for safety, all smokers MUST use the ashtrays provided as large parts of the site will be a fire risk in dry weather. We are, of course, subject to the Smokefree regulations from 1st July 2007 (there are no exemptions for private clubs), so the clubhouse is a no-smoking area.
Parking is restricted to the lower areas only, below the clubhouse. We do not allow vehicles onto higher parts of the site except for those who require such access because of disabilities – please make contact prior to your visit so that special arrangements may be made.
