Babs

Meet Babs

The meaning to Butlin's is very strong with Babs, who is an honoured member of this website (click here to see Babs story). Coming to Butlins with her parents, Babs would become a Redcoat and represented Sir Billy's dream to a high level. Today, Babs continues to be an inspiration to us all and is an expert on Clacton.

Always having the time to speak with any one at any time, Babs has always been a person who is easy to approach. She loves a story of Butlin's, however Clacton is where her heart is, so if you have anything on Clacton, please share away. Babs is also great at finding answers and has a great deal of knowledge to help where she can. I am extremely honoured to have Babs on my website and in our group.  There is so much that Bab's gives to us all and never asks for anything back, showing the spirit of Sir Billy Butlin.
