Thread: Mers from the British Isles!

  1. #21
    I'm up in Scotland :O Fife to be exact (I just moved from Glasgow though, I really miss it x.x). It is certainly cold for swimming here!! yet to make a tail as my fursuit/quadsuit work takes priority :3 but one day I shall!
    Nice to see others on the same island!

    Welcome Kurauno! It's always nice to see more mers from the British Isles. I love Scotland, I used to spend a lot of time there with my family when I was young.

    Hi

    I'm new here - based in London, UK. I'm pretty new to the whole Mermaid scene so any advice would be so welcome!

    Thank you!

    Mia Merode - I saw your fan page on Facebook and wanted to take a moment to compliment you on your art form. When I am not interacting with mermaids, the cabaret stage holds my rapt attention and deepest respect. It is my opinion that mermaids and cabaret performers are very similar, given that both communities call upon artistic and athletic gifts, allowing participants to express those talents with individual style.

    To the question at hand....

    I do not know if this individual is a member of MerNetwork, but Sandra Mermaid is in the UK https://www.facebook.com/sandramariemermaid

    I also follow the brand new page, Morveren mermaid of Cornwall: https://www.facebook.com/MorverenMermaidOfCornwall She is actually a jewelry maker, not a mermaid performer, but I mention her as someone of a kindred spirit.

    Last, but certainly not least, the UK is the home of Karen Kay and her international publication,
    Mermaids & Mythology - Themermaidmagazine.com: https://www.facebook.com/MermaidMagazine

    To the best of my knowledge, none of these individuals has a MerNetwork profile, but I thought you would find the information useful nevertheless.

    Hey Guys I Was thinking wouldn't it be awesome to go mermaiding in centre parcs, you could take amazing pictures in the swiming dome and it would be so much fun going down the rapids in a tail!

  12. #32
    Going to Centre Parcs would be awesome and not too far since I'm already up in the North lol I wonder if they would let you swim with a tail there? But yeah getting some picture with that swimming dome in the background would be neat. Shame I wasn't back in England to meet up with some of you. Though I am hoping to be back in England for a spell in April next year.

    So where does everyone in the Uk go mermaid swimming? x

    I live in the south end of Britian, not only is the weather terrible here but theres nowhere to swim! Nowhere allows fins and after spending £50 pounds on a new mask I was told I coudl not use it because of the silcone nose cover on it. They said it blocks cpr and the pool could be sewed. The manager even admitted that not all the rules they enforce are on their website! He just said "Looks mate who reallylooks at the website anyway?" ARGH! So annoying, currently I am forced to just practise tricks without a tail

    Oh, there's a Brit thread here!
    I'm from Scotland, up around Ayrshire. Few places to really go mermaiding (or "mermanning", rather), which is a shame, but it's nice to know there's a few others around here in a similar predicament.
    Those from England were worried they were alone in their passions, but there seems to be very few Scots even by comparison! Makes me feel a little isolated. xD

    Mermaid Aqua that really sucks! But as soon as anyone finds a pool that will take us we will have to all go swimming there or we will have to wait for the three days of sunshine that we might get in the summer
