BUTLINS BLACKPOOL METROPOLE 1974
I was a secretary working in a London office
I first went to Butlins Barry Island for the whole season of
1973. After a brief
shaky start, when I thought I might
regret it, I soon made some great friends and knew it was for me.
The following Easter I worked at Bognor Regis, and then the "Horse of the Year Show" at Wembley, representing Butlins. I also appeared on stage at the London Palladium for various presentations.
In 1974. I went back to Barry but got disillusioned and transferred half-way through the season, to the Metropole Hotel in Blackpool.
Before the end of the season, I left and
down to Devon. That Christmas I worked at Barry.
In 75, I went back to Barry Island.
I have very fond memories of those times.
