Wales is legendary for me when it comes to holiday in the 1980s. It all began with the North Wales Holiday Camp (sadly now demolished) , staying in small concrete chalets (pronounced shallee), where the beds were the couches you sat on in the day time.
Entertainment was provided by a club and competitions included 'yard of ale' which my mum won many times, knobbly knees, even back then and fancy dress for the kids.
It was also the time I began playing in 'arcades', space invaders, pac man etc.. and those 2p machines with the moving shelves. I set the alarms of many times trying to shake the bloody unit to get more cash.
We progressed to staying in caravans on The Robbin Hood Camp down the road, still there I think.
The we progressed onto Butlins and then Spain when I was 15.
Good times back then
Where did you used to go on holiday?
