This has become a club tradition over the years since the first members got together for a family week at the start of the school summer holidays and spent it at the club providing entertainment predominantly for their children but it became a week of fun and activities for every member of the club.
It always commences with the last weekend of July.
The pool will host water events in between it being the place to cool down in this glorious sunshine.
Our outdoor pool is kept at a comfortable temperature by a heat exchanger and is generally open for use from April to October.
Many of our members will be staying the whole week on site in their caravans or tents. Visitors are welcome to bring their own and we have electric hook ups, showers and toilets to use and the Kiosk will be open for refreshments throughout the day. On the evenings there is not a meal offered by the club catering team, you are invited to bring your own food to cook on our large, communal, under cover barbeque. This is in itself a social gathering around the coals and you can then sit in banquet style on the patio and put the world to rights over a leisurely meal. Bring your own wine or beer as we are not licensed premises.
If this delightful weather should change to rain we will eat indoors or under the gazebo on the patio.
Nothing stops us having fun at Blackthorns!

Well what can I say? You had to be there! What a week that was!
The sun shone, the children played, we all ate and drank far too much and we all had fun!
Dr Phil Soul Man gave a superb vocal performance the first Saturday after a lovely meal for which he, his wife and 2 friends joined us.. This was their first visit to a naturist club but not their last! They thought it was such a friendly, welcoming place and they enjoyed the night as much as we did!
The children all had a thoroughly busy, active week with lots packed in to keep them happy and entertained every day. They were of all ages but all gelled to form teams and groups that worked and played together. It was a joy to see.
They finished the week by wearing their bespoke, personalised Super Hero capes and grown-
The ladies had another afternoon of cocktails and chat and the men had 54 different real ales to try, with only 3 bottles of lager, standing very lonely and isolated on their own table, neglected!
Loud. excited cheers rang through the crowd that night as June became the overall winner of the week long darts competition! Girl power! But it’s the taking part that is important, not the winning, or so they say!
So much done, so much to recall, so much to organise, so much energy used, which leaves us with one question: What is the theme to be NEXT year?!
