My name is Liz Munday, or was in 1960. I was a Redcoat and, after 6 weeks training at Skegness, I opened Bognor Regis Butlins. There I met, and later married, Eddie Keene - the resident comedian.
We loved every minute of it, even the collapse of the indoor swimming pool. Then, when the campers flushed the toilets, the taps in the sink came on. The campers saying that there were no mattresses in the chalets.
I could go on forever, but all great experiences!
I learned how to entertain 4,200 campers, while they had their breakfast; to looking after the kids in the Kids Club. I was part of Radio Butlin, and did sing-songs in the 'Pig and Whistle' bar. That was before the Cabaret spots, the Lancers, the Chopsticks, the Redcoat Show, and the Sunday Night Variety Show on the revolving stage. I was 18 at the time.
We are sincerely grateful
