Welcome to Butlins Memorabilia, Celebrating Butlin's with memories, photos and stories

A large warm welcome to everyone who takes the time to come and visit my website, celebrating the great and amazing name Butlins. My name is Mark Banks and I am the proud owner of this website, which is designed by me in my personal time at home. Being a big fan of Butlin's, I can not help but have much pride in showing you my collection of Butlin's Memorabilia, in hope that it will spark a smile and memory for you all. 

Shown in the photo behind this writing is a gem, a truly magical and beautiful building that is maintained by the amazing staff at Butlins Skegness. When I look at this stunning gem, I can not help but feel emotionally happy to see a true beauty standing there looking at its resort, formerly known as a camp. My love for Butlin's name is extremely strong and I like to focus on the positive feeling that the name gives us all.

My obsession with Butlin start in the 1980s when I went to Butlin's Somerwest World in Minehead. It was another world as I loved every moment of my time at Butlins, from here my story started to be told. Every year, we went to Butlin's in Minehead as I found more changes that made me love the location more and more.

In 1999, I had gone from a teenager that went to Butlin's for holidays to an employee in Butlins Minehead. Every moment of this journey had taught me a great deal about myself as I represented the company my hero had started. Coming home, I became a caretaker for the local council and it was at this stage that I started my website....from there, its history as they say. My love for Sir Billy Butlin and the Butlins name is extremely strong and I admire it a great deal.

My website is always being updated by me on a weekly basis with new stories, items or updates.

Thank you for clicking on the link to come to my personal website. I have designed this with the help of Mobirise software, which is free to use and download. The site is only done during my personal time as I make an effort to do as much as I can to help create that spark of memory. The only issue that I have is that my collection grows faster than I can upload. Click on my video to view more about me and this website. 

Thank you for popping by, you are fantastic and very much welcome to the site. Please come and join us on social media (on the menu above) also, always ready for a chat about Billy's at any time!
