    I loved Porthcawl as a nipper, half our village would be there for the Miners Holiday. Caravan at Trecco Bay, mini golf, family outings to the Jolly Sailor Pub, the dodgy old funfair.

    My brother tells me they do surfing there nowadays. I'd love to go back but I suspect its not half as much fun as when I was seven!

    I used to go to Porthcawl a fair bit when I was a kid - it was seen as a posh alternative to the rough'n'tumble of Barry Island!

    I went to barry Butlins twice. The last two years that it was a Butlins (85 and 86?). I used to bawl my eyes out when we had to leave :( .

    When it got taken over we went to Minehead instead.

    lets here it 4 Happy Valley - not as big as Trecco, owned by 2 brothers, had a really crap club - but the sand dunes and beach were ace places to play :D

    Happy Valley was posher than Trecco Bay, I remember it being much nicer. We always had to stay in Trecco :(

    Trecco Bay was apparently the biggest caravan site in Europe _ I recall it had a massive bar capableof seriving about 50 people at once - and a Chapel that sat about 10 !

    I used to love the miniature train on our day trips - and of course the ancient (1890 ish) Wateshute - the fair at the end of the dy was the real treeat. The home on a chartered South Wales Transport double decker to Ammanford.
