Starting collecting your Dovercourt Bay with eBay, have a look at these items below
Bobby is a fantastic member of my group (to see more, click on these words), as he continues to surprise us all with his collections and memories of Barry Island. Giving me permission to share his items on this site, I was extremely taken aback when I received a photo of my hero, Sir William Butlin, and his family.
The main photo shown is one great honour as we see Bobby on the right-hand side sitting down with his friend, Sir William's Butlin nephew David. There is much I would like to ask as my mind feels so very excited to have this on the website. Thank you so very much Bobby and David for giving me permission to share this.
When this photo arrived, I could not believe what I was seeing as it was truly magical to see. It's a new level of the history of Butlins and my hero Sir William Butlin. This photo is amazing to see and shows you another side of the Butlin's history and how important the family connection is for this wonderful family.
This is an extremely important photo that contributes towards the history and timeline of Butlin's as we see the founder here showing how proud he is of his family. To have this on my website is mind-blowing. Sitting down with a great smile is the main man, the governor, or rightfully so, his name "Sir William Butlin". Sitting next to him is a lovely and amazing person who has done a great deal for charity and continued the Butlin spirit, Lady Sheila Butlin.
Sitting in the middle of Mr and Mrs Butlin is their granddaughter, Coral. In a rare photo, we see a photo of Sir William's Butlin children, Jackie, Billy Junior and Cherrie Butlin.
As quoted by Bobby: "This is the first time this picture has ever been seen by the public so many thanks David". I am extremely grateful and honoured to show this wonderful photo of the main man and his lovely family.
Bobby continues to tell me about this photo, which shows Sir Billy Butlin two children Jackie and Billy Junior. Sir Billy Butlin's granddaughter Coral and nephew David are also featured here.

In honour of the former location of Butlin's Barry Island is a blue plaque. This is a special item as you can see the Butlin Holiday Camp logo, which was used a great deal in the early days of Butlin's.
These pin badges were given to the work force who helped build the camp as the camp didn't open till 1966
Permission was given to Mark and Butlins Memorabilia website from Bobby and David (Sir Billy's nephew) to show their collection. With help from Bobby and David, you are able to view a story of a person that had helped many in the Butlin's timeline. Any stories and photos shown on this page are not owned by me and are owned by those who shared them. Please do not ask for their details as I will not share anything with you as I do not hold their details and it's not my place to give them away if I did.
