  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 full weekend in 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 where 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 or make yourself a cup of tea or coffee.

 If the weather should change to rain we will eat indoors.

Nothing stops us having fun at Blackthorns!

All events are based on enjoyment -

you don't need to be super energetic or skilled to join in!

  Please add your name to the lists on the notice board in the   clubhouse if you wish to attend an event or order food.

  Saturday Socials & Meals must be booked and paid for in   advance.


  The kiosk will be open all week selling hot & cold drinks, ice creams, chocolate,   

sweets, crisps & possibly cakes!

  Raffle tickets will be on sale all week and drawn on the final Sunday afternoon.


The first and second Saturday will involve an evening meal

and live music or a disco.

It sometimes includes a Fancy Dress theme, but it’s always optional.

There will be lots of organised activities for us all, whatever our age or ability!

Yellow duck race in the pool.

Pool Bingo.

Pub Games.

Crazy Golf tournament.

Darts match.



Horse racing.

Fish ‘n Chip supper.





Ladies Cocktail Afternoon: bring some drinks to mix

 but they needn’t be alcoholic if you prefer soft drinks.


 Men’s Beer tasting night: each bring 2 bottles and add to the table and, using shot  glasses provided, taste the rest and discuss which is best.

A Holiday Week for all our members!
