Sixty-five ex-Skegness Butlins Redcoats met up for a reunion on Saturday.

The reunion, now in its fourth year brought together Skegness redcoats from all over the British Isles and abroad.

Past Redcoats made trips from Cornwall, Scotland, Cyprus, Holland and Spain.

The group all once worked at the famous Skegness holiday camp and spent Friday, Saturday and Sunday, fondly remembering their time there.

The group indulged in the fun of a ‘60s weekend which was taking place on the camp, watching and sharing footage from their Butlins pasts and even visiting old chalet blocks once used by the Redcoat workers and held a memorial to a former Redcoat who had sadly passed away.

Organiser Warren Starling said: “Overall it was a magical experience, once a Redcoat, always a Redcoat. It felt poignant to be on the camp and we’ll be here next year too”.
