Christmas is looming, and we are securely settled into winter, but if you’re not quite in the spirit yet, here’s a DVD to relive summer one more time!

Known for its wonderful sandy beaches and family entertainment, the Lincolnshire coast has been a favourite holiday destination for people from the industrial Midlands since Victorian times.

Growing up in the Midlands, you more than likely had at least one trip down to Skegness, Mablethorpe or Sutton on Sea, and Footprints in the Sand allows you to relive the popular family destinations through a series of home movies rarely seen and newly restored dating from the 1930s to 1960s, sending a wave of nostalgia over those familiar with the locations.

The DVD also includes extracts of We Chose Skegness, a promotional film made in 1961 and narrated by Richard Baker, which depicts a family who plan to go on holiday to their usual resort of Skegness but this time are able to ‘do it in style’ after winning the Littlewoods Pools.

You will also get the chance to see a series of news reports and home movies chronicling the development of Britain’s first holiday camp, Butlins in Skegness, from the 1950s to 1980s.

To purchase this DVD in our 12 day only offer of £5, you can purchase online at the MACE website or you can order via telephone by calling MACE on 01522 837750.
