Memories of Charlie

A WALK down memory lane with Charlie.

Have you got a story to tell of a meeting with Butlins Filey Camp’s ‘Charlie the Elephant’?

If so, I would love to hear from you. I am writing a book based on my own childhood memories.

I lived on camp and grew up with Ibraham, Charlie’s keeper, as very dear friends and neighbours.

Charlie was on the camp in the mid to late 50s. Did you meet him, or know his keeper?

Have you fond memories you would like to share and add to mine for my book?

If you have photos or any memorabilia, which will be returned back to you that I could use? A stamped addressed envelope would be appreciated with correspondence.
