Several lawns, and woodland clearings, allow the Members to meet and laze away the
hours. Around the main lawn are the pavilion, children’s pavilion, the large swimming
pool, shower and toilet block, and the communal bar-b-q. The pavilion is the social
heart of Blackthorns, and light refreshments are usually available during the day.
In other clearings there are courts for miniten, badminton, volleyball and petanque,
a 9-hole crazy golf course, and a kiddies’ playground. Naturally, the woods provide
unlimited scope for the children to play. Blackthorns has a static caravan for hire
and electric hook-ups for touring caravans.
