Jeanettes Untold Butlins Story

Jeanette's Untold Butlin's Story

It is the year 1966 when Butlin's started to make an imprint on Jeanette's life. Featured in this photo is Jeanette in the arms of her father in the popular camp in Pwllheli, one of two camps to be in Wales, UK. That smile and feeling from the ride show you the true Sir Billy Butlin spirit and how Butlin's had created another memory!

The ride is called the Jungle book and looks like something I would love to have given a try :)

Pwllheli 1975

Dressed as Rupert the bear, I didn't win. The winner was a chest of drawers. Someone had a tee shirt with a load of knickers pinned to the top of it over her chest. Simple but effective.

History is frozen in time

As my memories continued to grow, I was very lucky to take a photo of an important area. This is of course (besides me) the umbrella, another iconic design from Sir Billy Butlins

Pwllheli group photo in front of the Margaret Rose

I am at the back in the Redcoat's arms in this very special photo. I have very fond memories of aunty Anne. My aunty, Anne looked after me year after year. I broke her sunglasses which were in her pocket when she lifted me so I would love to buy her a new pair. My sister and brother are to the right of me in the corner.

Minehead 1990 - an important photo

This one holds special memories. The very last Butlins holiday my dad went on before he passed away. He loved the Malones club where this photo was taken. The duo in there every night played Crazy Horse Saloon by patsy cline. Every time I hear that now it takes me right back. That is what Butlins does for you.

The famous Butlins fountains

Think everyone had their photo taken at these. There were two at Pwllheli. Either side of the outdoor pool. First thing you saw when you came through the main entrance. Also seen on the main road to Pwllheli town center. Here I am with my sister Elaine who looked after me and still does today.

Special Memories of this photo

This place is special too, it is the other side of the chairlift ride at Pwllheli. I used to love the excitement of the chairlift and the longest one at Butlins.

It was a sunny day, the scenery was breathtaking. Once over the other side, it was rocky as you can tell. But somehow I made it with the help of dad. Mum pushed my chair. My sister Elaine was always there to guide me.

We found an alcove where you could sit and paddle. Picnics galore up there. So beautiful and quaint as we went every year. Sometimes having to come back on the puffing Billy train if the chairlift packed up which often happened.

It was so long that the ride went on forever. The views were magical though. Sometimes think they stopped it on purpose. When you were halfway through the ride.
