The ANP celebrated its 67th birthday on May 21st, discreetly and without candles. A lot of you have also had birthdays lately, unable to be with those you love. We were wholeheartedly with you.
We have come out of our 55 days of confinement but in Île de France we haven’t yet achieved total freedom. Even if certain sporting facilities in Paris reopen in June, clubs and associations won’t achieve their normal rhythm before September.
Online activities: Our YouTube channel has gone through the roof, with over 3000 new subscribers in May. We are followed by people from all around the world and it’s a pleasure to be able to normalise naturism like that.
Our coaches held classes throughout the month of May and will continue to do so this summer. Here are the links to register for this first week of June:
Monday - gym with Claire from 7pm to 8pm
Tuesday - gym with Yvan from 6:30pm to 7:30pm
Thursday - gym with Yvan from 6:30pm to 7:30pm
Friday - yoga with Damien from 6:30pm to 7:30pm
Click on the links to reserve your places, free for our members and €10 for visitors. You will find the updated links each week on our events page.
I won’t talk about all the cancelled events but they will be organised bigger and better next year!
Resorts and camping grounds are reopening in June, which means that our trips in France can take place. Michel and his team are expecting us at Origan Village for the last week of July and we’ve already taken some bookings. Please contact us to make the most of this exceptional deal. Origan is now a permanent partner of the ANP and all of our members will have a special price.
For more information on our outings, please take a look at the events page on our website or send us an email or an SMS on +33 7 66 14 53 09.
Renewals: Many of you have reached or will reach the end of your membership during this period of closure. All new memberships and renewals paid now will have free access to all of our online activities but your annual membership will officially start the day we reopen in September. If you all wait for this reopening to pay your membership, you will be giving my team a huge amount of work. I therefore ask you to renew from today, which will allow us to do the job peacefully and stress-free, ready for September. If you’ve lost the link, please send us an email.
FFN News: Please read the press release issued by the French Federation of Naturism entitled “La Nudité c'est la Liberté” (Nudity is Freedom) and sign the petitions on Avaaz and Change.
