O Naturismo é uma forma de viver em harmonia com a Natureza caracterizada pela prática da nudez colectiva, com o propósito de favorecer a auto-estima, o respeito pelos outros e pelo meio ambiente.

The 7th BN Nudefest 7th-14th July 2013 at Newperran Holiday Park Newquay U.K. was a great event with sunshine for the whole time; the hot weather was a good change. This year we had a new team of helpers which guided everyone through the week, giving all the opportunity to enjoy our week in Cornwall.

There were between 300 to 500 visitors over the week; from as far as Australia, Italy, New Zealand, Norway and Netherlands, with individuals from Wales and Scotland too. The sports, games and entertainment were fully enjoyed by everyone throughout the week.

Keith and Christine the owners of Newperran extend a very warm welcome to everyone, wishing us all an enjoyable week, confirming this week has given them so much pleasure over the years. This year we have an indoor pool which was fantastic news as it gives us a chance to continue the fun should the weather fail us.

Newperran is not a naturist camp site for most of the year it a textile site, but for one week a year this wonderful site transforms into a very well provided for naturist site, with first class amenities.

I was delighted and honoured to present Keith and Christine with an INF flag as this was the seventh year of providing this opportunity for Naturists within Great Britain and more recently to the wider circle of the INF. Both have promoted the ethics and good practise of Naturism for many years and promote BN and individual naturists as a great group of people.

Keith and Christine surprised everyone with the news they were going to transform a 5 Acres field in to an all year naturism camping site with full camp facilities. The quality of this site will be exceptional if they maintain the standards elsewhere on site, which will be a first for the Great Britain.

Nudefest wouldn’t be the success it is without the support of many volunteers who give freely of their time before and during the event. Rather like the game makers of the Olympics, the volunteers are an invaluable element of Nudefest and we would like to take this opportunity to thank them all.

As the reporter for EuNatCom and the INF I was presented with a 60th birthday cake from BN as it, would not last till September we did enjoy it.

The events that members were able to take part in included Archery, 5 a side football, Volleyball, Petanque, Water polo, Scuba Diving, LeRoc Dance, Belly Dancing, Tai Chi, Country Dancing along with Pool Parties, ten Pin Bowling, Photography Workshops, Book Club, and War Games.

Off-site were the Beach Day, Coastal Walk, Bodmin Walk, Bosvigo Gardens, National Maritime Museum and Skinners Brewery Trip all was naturist. On site provided the opportunity for a Massage and Fire Walking for those brave enough to walk across the hot coals- a chance of a lifetime to do something different!

So if any of these and many more appeal to your sense of adventure, whilst being with like-minded people come to Nudefest on the 6th to 13th of July 2014. I hope to see many more members from the INF there. See you there.
