Barry Island - Butlins Holiday Camp - One of the dining suites packed for lunch - August

Barry Island - Butlins Holiday Camp - One of the dining suites packed for lunch - August 1975 - *A NEW era in the history of Barry Island has been put on hold. Councillors last night decided to visit the resort to examine more closely the ambitious redevelopment plans for the Pleasure Park. It was a rainy day on Barry Island which gave Billy Butlin the inspiration he needed to begin his holiday camp empire. Realising that holidaymakers and day-trippers had nowhere to go if it rained, Butlin came up with the idea of providing accommodation and all their entertainment under one roof. The same principle has driven Barry Island businessman Ian Rogers whose plans to transform the Barry Island Pleasure Park into an undercover leisure, housing and retail complex went before the Vale councilis planning committee last night. The park lies within the Barry Marine Conservation Area and the plans, if approved, would be the most significant development at the resort since the Butlins holiday camp opened in the 1960s

A new project at Hawker Siddeley Aviation, Bitteswell, is well and truly airborne

A new project at Hawker Siddeley Aviation, Bitteswell, is well and truly airborne. The first of 21 Buccaneer aircraft due to be modified and serviced at the factory has been handed back to the RAF after its eight-month overhaul. Only an hour after leaving Bitteswell, the low-level strike reconnaissance aircraft was due at RAF Laarbruch in Germany ready for front line operation. Mr Vic Lawton, production superintendent, said: "This is a new project for HSA Bitteswell. It is the first time that we have handled Buccaneers." He said that during the eight-month programme the Buccaneer had been stripped down and virtually rebuilt. Nearly 50 men are involved on the project. Although 21 Buccanners are due to pass through the factory, only five are there at one time. As each plane is handed back to the RAF another is flown in. The first completed plane was collected by pilot, Flt.-Lt. Rob Williams, who flew in from Germany with his observer, Wing Commander John Palmer. Buccanners have been in service for about 15 years.
