Since our beginning on 31st January 2007, we have reunited scores of Butlins Redcoats
who otherwise would never have found each other.
We have also posted hundreds of photos of former Butlins Redcoats and Entertainment staff,
on this website, for tens of thousands of former Butlins staff and Campers to enjoy.
The only way we can continue to do this is if YOU send us in your stories,
memories and photos of your years with BUTLINS.
Sincere thanks to all those who have contributed so much so far,
and to those who are about to.
