Time for another blast of a Butlins holiday as we all set off eagerly to our holiday destination, stopping for lunch at a delightful pub for lunch along the way. What a lively and exciting holiday it was as we danced the nights away to several wonderful tribute acts! We saw Jessie J, Olly Murs, Robbie Williams, and a Blues Brothers Show.
During our week away we took an invigorating train ride along the promenade, just steps away from our resort. Melanie took the girls down to the sea shore with the satisfying sound of crunching stones under foot! How lovely it was to be beside the sea. We had a cracking game of crazy golf on the sea front where some brilliant holes-in-one were scored - some had quite a talent for it!
We spent some much loved time at the Funfair on the resort, with some of us going all-out on the rides! Chris looked after Melanie on one of the big rides to make sure she didn't get too scared! We had a go at 'Hook the Duck' and we all won prizes to take home with us.
One morning we headed into the beautiful city of Chichester and went inside the stunning cathedral. Everyone was in awe of the rich history, and we learnt that it is nearly 1000 years old! We had a lovely morning coffee and cake in an amazing patisserie - there were so many wonderful cakes to choose from! We enjoyed a picnic in the impressive castle grounds before heading into the town itself. We dipped into a very old sweetshop where some bought gifts to take home - all of the traditional sweets on offer made our mouths water!
A few of us went swimming one morning whilst others spent time in the arcade playing on the variety of games. We had a game of ten pin bowling which everyone loved - the competitive spirits were running high with some great strikes being scored! It was an absolutely super holiday and we hope to see everybody again next year.
