Understanding ownership and being respectful

The items shown on this website are from my collection, with the exception of those who have shared their untold stories. I am always very thankful to those who took the time to take these photos of Butlin's during a time that is no more. As with all items, the images are subject to copyright of the publisher. For this reason, I always show the publisher's name and reference numbers to thank them for their hard work and to also give credit to those who took the time to do such wonderful and beautiful work. Below are my four key areas regarding this area;

  • Respect towards the publisher - As you might have already seen, most of my collection has a form of watermark on them, including those in the untold stories of Butlins. This has been done to help with preventing the images from being copied and sold. I have only recently seen one that had placed its only watermark on it and wanted to sell it for a profit. However, the image was taken from Wiki, showing that the watermark does indeed help.
  • Reproduction - Please do not ask me for a copy of the original to be sent without a watermark. I have no plans to fulfil this request and ask that you do ask me. Any emails or contact requesting this will be ignored. I would highly recommend that you go to the publisher's website and purchase or enquire with them about how to obtain a copy. There are also alternative options such as selling websites or the locations themselves, such as Butlins Minehead (and Minehead town) Skegness Butlins (and town), and Bognor Regis Butlins (and town) I will not sell or make any copies.
  • Open to solving issues -  With any item shown on my website, I had always wanted it to spark that smile and hope to remind you of a memory. There are times when I might mess up and for that, I apologise if that happens. Please get in touch with me to discuss this as I would love to solve this as soon as possible. This can include the removal of an item to blur a person out of a photo. There will be no notifications put on the site to say why, just that it had to be done. Of course, we need to discuss this further as I will need to make sure that you are the person who represents this area. 
  • Get in touch - If you wish to chat with me about any concerns, please get in touch with me. All you need to do is chat with me on the Facebook message or by clicking on these words to email me.

Q.  If I disagree with the watermarks?  A: Sorry you feel that way however, this is how the website is set up.

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. 

Butlins Memorabilia extra areas

This website is made and maintained by me, Mark Banks, as a fan site to celebrate the amazing Butlins name as it has such a large meaning to me.  Below is additional information about the website and answers to questions that you might be thinking of (hopefully I have covered them all, if not, get in touch)

The Untold Stories of Butlin's

The website has expanded to now include an area called "Untold Stories of Butlin's". These stories have been added to the site by a member of my group who has shared their moment at Butlin's. These stories are not from the official company and are from the person it represent, as shown on the page. The stories shared are from that person's memory and show the magic of Butlin's on how it creates that special moment. 

If you are not official, who is Mark?

Butlin's Memorabilia is NOT the official website for Butlins. This site is also NOT the official website for the archive of Butlin's. The owners of Butlin's, Butlin's company, and Butlins.com have NOT approached me to design this site. They have no involvement with the development of the website or with the information that is shown. I am extremely thankful that they allow me to continue showing you their company's rich history. 

The number one website for Butlins is always, www.butlins.com where you see all the information about booking a break.
