It appears that Butlins Minehead is having a makeover. My inbox has been $h1t hot all day with the planned desecration of the camp we love so much. The plans (see attachement) now removed from the planning website.

The plans do look very nice. But if you are going to plough so much money in to this project why not find a plot and start from scratch. Is making Minehead like Centerparks a good idea? If Bourne want a Centerparks resort go and find a field and build one.

Remember the Dermot king fob off session on Butlins Memories last year and the way he gave the impressing that nothing was in the pipeline in the way of redevelopment. what a crock of crap this man was spouting. It's no wonder Bourne employed him, his ability to bend the truth is outstanding he should be a politician.

Butlins has been going down the path of you get what you pay for for a few years now. Unfortunately it's at the point now where once on camp paying to enjoy yourself is all that's left to do.

So that's it. I'm done with Butlins/Bourne they have had the last of my hard earned, once all this new stuff is in place I'm off to PONTINS.

It's time to concentrate on the memories of Old Butlins informing people of how good it was, and it WAS.

Billy you had a vision, a vision you brought to fruition and shared with everyone. I'm sure making money was your goal but you differed from the likes of Rank and Bourne Leisure in that it wasn't at any cost.

Sir Billy I/WE Salute you.

Had Fun !!!

I couldn't agree more I knew I could rely on this site to say it how it is, no BL brown nosing over here lol.
I'm taking the kids to Pontins at Camber Sands for May half term because even if I could afford Butlin's school holiday prices I cant afford the ridiculous amount of spending money you need there just to keep your whistle wet & the kids entertained.

At minehead and have been talking to certain staff who i will not name,seemingly bourne have made a huge mistake with the inn on the green,the staff hate it and say its to generic and its struggling to get customers in,people look through the door,think its boring then move on,heard a design company might be brought in to and generate some atmosphere.

Not long now until a week in minehead,plan is to have a good dig around and see whats going on,surely if something is going to happen this back end then some staff might have an idea, i've told myself that once bourne start the massacre at minehead then I won't be able to hring my self to go again. Its like we know whats going to happen but waiting for the senencing to begin,weird feeling.

Hi all,

Yes, great chalet shots. I often visit Skeg Butlins, to take a look at the original chalet at the back of the camp.

It looks well tiny, but bet folf had a right blast in it.

Barry Island fan,

Matt. :D
