Just like Butlins

WHILE visiting Parliament Street, I stumbled across rows of chalets looking like a 1930s Butlins holiday camp.

I was expecting Paul Shane, Ruth Madoc and Su Pollard to announce over the loudspeaker the times of afternoon bingo and the glamorous granny contest.

After buying my goodies from Marks&Spencer, I asked a member of staff about these buildings. It was for the St Nicholas Fayre and for the Christmas season. A great slogan came to mind: “Hi dee hoo hoo hoo.”

Considering the length of time it took to erect/construct these Chalets I trust the costs to the Council are fully covered by the rents.
The Butlins analogy circa 1950 is so true, and sadly they haven't learned from the last time that the entry steps make them almost inaccessible to most disabled shoppers.
