Butlins, Fun & Dancing
We were thoroughly entertained each evening at the Center Stage, dancing to all the amazing tribute acts! We saw tribute act of Elton John, the Spice Girls & the Beatles. On the dance floor we all took the opportunity to dance with the Red Coat!
We had lots of thrills at the funfair, we all enjoyed our selves immensely on the Carousel, paratrooper ride and the bumper cars. A few of us tried our luck at the "hook a bag" and all received a lovely prize to take home.
Natureland Seal Sanctuary. We managed to watch the rescued seal pups being fed and listen to the handler explain how the sick pups were rescued and are being nursed back to health so that they can soon be released back into their natural habitat. We saw snakes, spiders, a water dragon and some crocodiles before heading outside where we watched the Meerkats playing and basking in the sunshine! We fed and stroked the goats and alpacas before heading into the tropical house with the beautiful plants and flowers.
We walked along the seafront and stopped to meet the donkeys on the beach who enjoyed being made a fuss of by the group.
We visited the WW1 and WW11 exhibits, where we saw a fantastic collection of military memorabilia including weapons, uniforms, photos, books and various forms of transport. At the village Church Farm, the group had fun in learning how to milk a cow and we were all very successful in filling up the bucket. We walked around the beautiful grounds and were lucky enough to see the traction engine which is currently being restored.
