The Naked Truth

Crikey! I see Thanet Council may give the green light for nudists to cavort in Pegwell Bay!

The bay, which is a Site of Special Scientific Interest, has already been dogged by dogging and deluged by dead starfish. According to top Thanet nudie Peter Checksfield, the council has now offered it as a special spot for those with no clothes. The naturists normally enjoy letting it all hang out at Botany Bay, near Kingsgate, but have been told that's, er, not on.

Well, earlier today I stopped Mr Ceaucescu (no relation) in the middle of masticating the upstairs shower room and sent him out in his best birthday suit to see if he could come up with any alternatives. The result? Broadstairs... of course. And it seems he made a friend!

Exploring art on Peter Checksfield's site, eh?
Presumably doing research for the Turner Centre debacle and nothing, what-so-ever, to do with asphyxiating poultry!

Eastcliff Richard said...

Certainly not, Lucy! Although Mr Ceaucescu (no relation) tells me he did put a small deposit in his Barclays account during the making of the film.

Richard I thought Pegwell Bay was mostly mud which suggests rather an odd message coming from somewhere in TDC, oh well I suppose if they’re into that sort of thing, or perhaps they don’t know the difference between naturists and naturalists. Thanks for yet another amusing video on ECR TV

Yay! Naked mud wrestling!

I quote the following paragraph from the: Local plan inquiry - inspectors report, chapter 8 Tourism, page 400:

"40. I understand the slipway and hardstanding were built on a foundation of colliery waste, the removal and disposal of which would be beyond the Council’s resources. A contamination report has been commissioned. I see that the vast concrete surface is starting to break up."

Nice to see they've found a use for this site at last.

I saw some great tits down there once. The birdlife is magnificent.

Very funny. Another great ECR TV production.

Nudies are likely to get their arses bit by one of the two thousand dogs that are walked there every day. A new definition of dogging!

Michael Child said...

Nice one Fred this is altogether darker than I first thought.

Broadstairs Mick will have to make another radio appeal.

Some years ago there was a spate of thefts of German students' footwear left on Broadstairs "Beach" as the Hun pupils were off paddling.

Mick phoned Invicta Radio to ask for an appeal to Broadstairs dog owners to clear up dog droppings until the Thieves of Hun footwear were apprehended.

Barefoot, explained Mick, is one thing but getting back to the School of English with dog poop between the toes is quite another.

Mick ? Didn't you own a school of English ........

That would mean your concern was purely for your own floors and facilities ?

Good man. F-ck the hund dung gunge clung shoeless clueless Hun.

A bank clerk told me that Ceaucescu (no relation) made a small deposit at the same time as he managed a large withdrawal.

In fact the clerk rather leaked the amount involved.

And has indeed now signed up for regular cheques.

Ceaucescu had, in fact, made use of inflationary pressure to achieve leverage in the bare market.

I remember watching something similar at school years a go called 'Welcome to Sunny Broadstairs'. It show cased the tourism industry, schools (Charles Dickens pupils leaving for the day wearing school caps!), Other industry, St. Peters and nightlife.

Hmmm, interesting video....the salty sea-dog type at 1:13 in front of the N Foreland Lighthouse made me laugh...."Ah ha ma girl, you come and taste some of the captain's own cod fish fingers". Bad old man, Bad!

Dick R said...

Also look out for the other salty sea-dog type fisherman at 00:30 giving the young lady a life time's experience of gutting halibat (and wearing frocks on the end of the jetty when times got hard) and spinning the fisherman's yarn. "It was this big" Hmmmm, like with age I doubt it is now.

The music was used as the theme tune for the early Miss Marple movies, in fact I think I caught a glimpse of Margaret Rutherford playing bowls. Perhaps ECR could pen a wonderful crossover script called 'Murder by Dickens!'.

Hi all,

It's Peter Checksfield here...

About a year ago, TDC put signs up at Botany Bay, telling people that they'll be prosecuted if they strip off (despite the fact that it's OT illegal to strip off in public anywhere unless there's a specific by-law; it's only illegal to "deliberately cause offence"). I complained to the council, & the result was a meeting between myself (& another local naturist) & Shirley Tomlinson + a couple of other Council members. They insisted that they don't want us at Botany Bay, so I told them the only way they'll stop us is by providing an alternative location. That's when they suggested Pegwell Bay, though we haven't heard anymore since (I emailed them a few days back to chase things up). The concrete & mud area is useless of course, but there's a small section to the left (east) of this which may be suitable, & it has a couple of advanatages over Botany Bay:

* Easy access at all times (there's at least two local disabled naturists)

* Nearly toiled & snack bar facilities (next to the Viking Ship at the top of the slope)

* Reasonable access by public transport (a bus stops near here).

The downside is that it's impossible to swim there whe the tide is out.

As for dogging / sexual activities, no true naturist (including myself) condones such things. The problem with "unofficial" naturist beaches is that innocent naturists are made to feel like they're doing something wrong; with approved sites we'd have no hesitation of calling the police to put a stop to those sort of things.

If anyone has any further questions / comments then they're welcome to contact me via my website: www.nakedinthanet.com

Hi Peter,

If you're still on, could you email me with your phone number? The, er, gentlemen of the press would like to follow this up.

Just click on my email address under my profile piccie.

Toodle-pip,

Botany Bay has been used by naturists for years. The council should get over it. Or is it the hoity-toity local residents that are causing a fuss?

Eastcliff Richard said...

Mr Ceaucescu (no relation) tells me that the music is indeed by Ron Goodwin, who also wrote such rousing anthems as the Battle of Britain theme, the theme to 633 Squadron and the Dambusters March.

Available at all good record shops, and, I presume, via iSpoons.

Peter Checksfield said...

Hi Richard,

I've only just come back online, but I've been interviewed by two different local newspapers this morig, & I've also just been photographed (naked) at Botany Bay by a Times/Gazette photographer! So keep an eye on the press next week.

Keep up the good work! : )

Eastcliff Richard said...

Crikey! I do hope you, er, kept your pecker up in this chilly weather!

Peter Checksfield said...

PS. Excuse the typos in my previous posts (I really need a new keyboard!).

If I am down the beach with my daughters, ages 9 and 12 and the beach is not designated for nudist activity and some nude dude walks past baring all, he'll get my right foot in his knackers, end of.

Peter Checksfield said...

And I'd have absolutely no hesitation in calling the police...

Anonymous said...

What if it's a naked woman walking past?

What a shame that some people can't differentiate between a naked human body and sexual activity.

I have an acquaintance who objects to seeing pregnant women on television because, in his words, 'it's the equivalent of me standing in front of the cameras with a stiffy in my trousers'. Victorian values are still with us I'm afraid.

Eastcliff Richard said...

Peter - I've, er, lent you my support by popping a link to Naked In Thanet on my sidebar on the right.

Peter Checksfield said...

Thank you Richard, I've added a link to your site from www.nakedinthanet.com!

Eastcliff Richard said...

If you like I'll get my cartoonist chum Snailspace to draw the rest of me and come down and join you on the beach next time.

Snaily - could you knock up something flattering for me? Cheers.

There's a pretty positive article in today's The Thanet Times:
