At the end of April on a Saturday we headed off to Butlins in Skegness, I had been invited as a Butlin’s Ambassador to meet up with some of the others, have a meeting and a bit of a tour.
Whilst I was doing that the kids and hubby headed off to hit………well everything; they fit a whole lot of swimming, shows, fairground rides, parks and more into one day.
These are the two lovely Red Coats that showed us around and they were made to pose with this original chalet (they add a splash of brightness don’t they?)!
This Chalet was moved from it’s original location and now sits near the seafront, anyone can go and have a peek at it.
Skegness Butlins opened in 1936 and Billy Butlin himself designed these Chalets – they cost £10 to build. It was very basic (well by our standards), bed, sink, chest of drawers and only cold running water!
This chalet really intrigues me, I would love to hear some of the stories of the families, individuals and soldiers who stayed there! I love seeing and hearing about little bits of history and it amazes me how far Butlins has come since then.
