    They do I have kids clubs, I cant remember what age you have to be to join them though. I know they take the kids off and keep them entertained for hours but at Charlie & Ethans age i really cant see any problem. Im sure its like 4+ or something.

    The kids entertainment on a night is fairly good too. You get all the song and dance from Bradley bear etc ( I thats his name & the kids get to play games etc )

    You don't need bedding if i can remember rightly from when we stayed in the shalets.

    I'm sure you would be able to read up on it all on the website hunni xx

    Me i went :)
    I went to the one in skegness
    We wnt 1/2 board and bedding was provided but not towels
    There is kids clubs where they can go but Emily never went and it took us a few dats to find were it actualy was LOL
    Skegness also have a nursery that you can put little ones in for a while but you have to book in advance
    I took Jack for a taster session which lasted 45 mins i think and he loved it but we never needed to use it after that.

    Anything else just ask :)

    if it was a deal like from the sun, you will need bedding or pay premium to get it, if you're half board you get the bedding with it. Call up and ask huni

    Layla copied for you in case you can't get on :)
    Billy's Junior Star Nurseryhttps://www.butlinsonline.co.uk/images/echo6/shim.gifHelp is at hand

    Babies can be a handful at the best of times but don’t worry - Butlins is there for you.

    • Evening sessions are at £12.50
    Children can play freely or join in supervised activities, including sand and water play, storytime, playdough fun, painting and music. There are plenty of toys to keep them busy too, including great new Krucial Kids educational toys.

They can take part in parachute games, painting classes, circus workshops, stage school, model making, football coaching and musical games. Plus there are plenty of board games and our cinema with great kiddies’ films.

    Hey thats pretty good, I might invest in taking the baby and Eleanor there next year. Me and chris could have an hour or two to do things also whilst we are there. We went to Haven with Eleanor this year and i had my car tyres slashed, Cant say i'll be rushing back to haggerston castle again like and the kids entertainment during the day wasnt that good either.

    Sounds like a winner that :D
