From the Bygones inbox

Clint Gaskell is asking "I was wondering what year they were available, what they are made of and weather they were given away as prizes or on general sale"

it looks very like a medal we gave out in Ayr for the sports comps, snooker darts football etc. but I could be wrong. I was at Ayr 79 and 80.
oh happy days

I was thinking it was before my time (First visit was in 1973)

My last Butlins trip as a child was to Ayr in 1980 and don't remember them, having said that I was never good enough to win any of the competitions :lol:

The one I acquired for my collection is either very worn, over polished or was a Bronze colour.

The picture make it look bigger than it is, it's about the size of a 50p
