Martin's untold Butlins story

Martin's Untold Butlin's Story

Welcome to the untold story of Martin's story, a former Redcoat named Worzel. Working during the Butlin's Holiday Worlds era in Somerwest World, Martin would contribute towards the smiles and memory creation for many customers. Working from 1990 to 1992, Martin would be known for his impressions. I personally remember Martin due my time at Butlin's Somerwest World and it was a great joy to see him in my group and agree to be added to this site. Thank you Martin for what you did in the early 90's as it really helped me feel that I was in another place and I needed it greatly.

Martin's Memory as a Redcoat in Somerwest World

One very wet day I was compering in an unusually packed ballroom...the Wessex rooms. A blond-haired girl about 3 walked up to me while I was talking on the microphone and said very clearly...Can I say a poem? The people all were heard to say...aahhhhhhh. I handed her the microphone and that was my big mistake... With the microphone in her hand, she  clearly said

"Two little dickie birds sitting on a wall, one named Peter and one named away Peter fly away Paul,  piss off Peter piss off Paul"

She then ran back to her parents who were laughing very loudly as was everyone in the room. I said Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls I'd love to thank you for a very successful career here at Somerwest World I'm now popping next door to the personnel office to collect my p45. There were no complaints which was good and obviously, everyone in the room had a great sense of humour

Who and What is Butlin's Memorabilia Website

Mark Banks owns and created this website to show his collection of Butlin's memorabilia items. It was created during my spare time at work and is a hobby of mine and has since grown into a site that offers a chance for others to smile. This website is NOT the official website for Butlin's and is NOT the official archive of Butlin's at any stage. The website has expanded to show stories, with permission from that person, of a moment in Butlin's from people who are either a customer or former staff. This website is in loving memory of all that had come to this amazing company and to Sir William Butlin, the founder.  This website also has information about research regarding Butlin's history with information obtained from the research I made, which is not official.
