Re: butlins at filey

Great photos Barney, we stayed in white camp which is in the top left hand corner of the map, that's where they stuck all the noisy young ones. I was there in 1967 and 1968 and the bars me and jimmy have mentioned are not on the 1969 map, they must have closed a good few of them down for the start o...

Re: butlins at filey

The Beachcomber was a good little bar Jimmy.
Was the Sportsman bar still there went you went, it was a huge bar with animal heads on the wall, there was a stage at the bottom end of the bar where the group played every night.

Re: some pictures from the south Pacific

Great photos, I was in Jamaica a while back and they have a similar waterfall there, Duns River Falls they call it, we climbed it a couple of times. It was good day out there and a lot of fun.

Re: some pictures from the south Pacific

Those photos got me reminising of last years trip to the Dominican Republic, especialy when you got talking about the food.

Re: butlins at filey

I went Butlins in 1967 and had such a great time there, went back the following year. They use to put the young ones down at the bottom end of the camp, if I remember rightly it was called white camp. I remember the Beachcomber Bar, it use to have a screen along the wall which use to have thunder an...

Re: MURDERS IN SOUTH SHIELDS
