The Final Resting place of Sir Billy Butlin - a great man that help us smile

The sad news that no one wanted to hear was when Sir Billy had passed away. It was a moment in time that many would raise their glasses to the man who started it all. Sir Billy Butlin had passed away before I was born but I would loved to have met him, shake his hand and say "Thank you"

It all started with one man...

Sir Billy Butlin had an idea and a vision to create that helped so many people smile and have fun. Sir Billy was ahead of his time as he has shown an idea where you paid once and got all included, such as funfair, swimming, and entertainment. His vision was to allow all to enjoy a break that is affordable and memorable. Without any doubt, he is one of the greatest men to walk the earth and the reason why the B logo was invented. Today, Bourne continues his legacy and invest millions to keep Butlins running, hopefully into many years to come.

"I'd like to be the sort of friend that you have been to me; I'd like to be the help that you've been  always glad to be; I'd like to mean as much to you each minute of the day. As you have meant, old friend of mine, to me along the way. I'd like to do the big things and the splendid things or you. To brush the gray out of your skies and leave them only blue; I'd like to say the kindly things that I so oft have heard, And feel that I could rouse your soul  the way that mine you've stirred.  I'd like to give back the joy that you have given me, yet that were wishing you a need I hope will never be; I'd like to make you feel as rich as I, who travel on Undaunted in the darkest hours with you to lean upon. I'm wishing at this Christmas time that I could but repay a portion of the gladness    that you've strewn along the way; And could I have one wish this year, this only would it be: I'd like to be the sort of friend that you have been to me.
