BUTLINS FILEY 1961

Hi "A.J"
Great to have found this site! I was a Redcoat at Filey in 1961,
and during the day I worked in the Entertainments Office.

ANNE CANTWELL

That's me - Anne Cantwell,
outside my chalet
.

And that's me with Rene,
outside a less salubrious place.

We always ate with the guests.

UNDER THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE

Where's Adam?

Sharing a bit of knowledge with Liz.

WATERING the FLOWERS
A rose between two thor .... er ... campers.

So far I've been under a tree, next to a lava-tree,
and now I'm with Lou.

"Camp tramp" JOHN O'MAHONEY

B I NG O - or "TOMBOLA" as it was called then.

If you are thinking this is a bit OTT for a game of Bingo - you 'd be right.
It's a song and dance number we did in the Redcoat Show.

No.4 is me - Anne Cantwell. No.22 is Valerie Round.
Some of the other Redcoats are: Rodney Willescroft, Eve McHugh, Shirley Rashbrook, and Barbara Allport.

Orchestra leader TEDDY FOSTER, presenting prizes to the winners of the Junior Dancing Competition.

Teddy Foster & his Orchestra were the resident band in 1961.
His singer was Julie Rogers, who later went on to have a big hit record in 1965 with "The Wedding."
