Butlins with Steve and Wendy

As usual, on our way to Skegness we stopped off at a lovely country pub for lunch.  Upon arrival at Butlins we had a nice relaxing cuppa then unpacked and settled into our Gold Star accommodation.

Each evening we ate out in different restaurants, a particular favourite being “Papa John’s” where we all made the most of the “all you can eat buffet”!

As usual the entertainment was fantastic! We saw magicians, comedians, The Glee Show, The Story of Soul and tribute acts to Michael Jackson and Take That. We all showed off our moves on the dance floor and Matthew seemed to know the words to every song.  We were usually the last to leave the floor!

During the day some of us went to the swimming pool. Paul, David and Michael especially enjoyed going down the flumes. We all had great fun in the arcades seeing how long we could make our coins last. Well done to Robbie for winning our Air Hockey Tournament and to Jonathan for winning our first game of Bowling. We had a team competition of Pool which ended in a draw and Angela who had never been bowling before did brilliantly and won our second game!

We went to the cinema to see “Pirates! In an adventure with Scientist” which was hilarious and at the funfair Jonathan and Angela won teddy bears by hooking ducks.

We also had time to do some souvenir shopping, Angela was an expert!

After packing up on Friday we drove to Lincoln where we had our last meal all together in another nice pub. We said our goodbyes and headed our separate ways home.
