Over the years I've collected quite a few postcards showing Pontins holiday camps dating back to the 1960s.

The majority of the cards I have are from the 1970s and 1980s and a lot of them show miniature golf courses.

You can buy Picture Postcard Monthly magazine via the PPM website, or at postcard fairs around the country.
I'm a big fan of the seaside, holiday camps and crazy golf and have collected a large number of postcards showing various locations. In recent years we've also been on holiday to Pontins Prestatyn Sands for On the Buses fan club events.

Growing up, my family went on holidays to camps at Barry Island, Minehead, Bognor Regis and Camber Sands. The November 2016 issue of Picture Postcard Monthly includes a feature I wrote about Butlin's cards.
