BRITAIN’S famous Redcoats are turning green this summer as Butlins launches an initiative with The Wildlife Trusts to encourage visiting families to explore the beautiful beaches at their three resorts.

This week, dozens of Redcoats are being put through their paces to become fully fledged Greencoat Guides - helping holidaymakers explore the seaside and discover the wildlife that inhabits its shores.

Jae Hopkins, for Butlins, said: “British holidaymakers do love to be beside the seaside – and there are huge benefits to venturing outdoors, so we’ve teamed up with The Wildlife Trusts to train a group of Greencoats to help families re-connect with the natural world. This is the first time ever in our 75 year history that we’ve introduced a new colour wardrobe.”
