    Could maybe perhaps OFAH could arrange a Jolly Boy Outing with pick up point around the UK with a single destination where all OFAH fans could meet up and have a weekend to remember. Perhaps it could win a guinees book of records award for the biggest Jolly Boy Outing ever staged. The destination could be a weekend at a Butlins type holiday camp where we could all go dressed as a favourite OFAH character…the On The Buses fan site arrange a yearly meeting in Wales where an On The Buses was filmed, so perhaps we could fill a holiday camp with purely OFAH and perhaps could persuade Raquel and Tony to provide an evening of song for entertainment and would be even better if we could get aa few more of the cast to come and join us on a yearly Jolly Boys Weekend. It could be the start of something very big… ie Madness take over a bUtlins each year for a Madness Weekend so with an even bigger audience of OFAH fans we could fill a Butlins very easily. Any thoughts lads and lasses, we could start a new chapter of OFAH yearly gathering outside the already massive Convention.

    I’ve been going on Jolly Boys Outings since the 70s with the Royal British Legion. Every year the Legion arranges a seaside outing for the members and it is a brilliant laugh from start to finish. We all have a sing song on the way there and on the way back. We have been anywhere from Margate to Clacton and Yarmouth to Skegness from our club in London. I am only in my 50s and started going as a teenager with my dad. Also used to go on what we called a Beano (Jolly Boy Outing) with our local football team club (Hendon FC) until it closed down and moved to a place miles from Hendon (Sad Times). Still all i can say is Keep The Faith Boys and keep the Beano’s and Jolly Boys Outings going as this is a Great British event that should never be lost.

    Went to Jolly Boys Blackpool Weekend Trips Every Year till 2010 then 1 Lad Started Asking if his Mrs Went too. No Amount of Telling Him it’s a ‘JOLLY BOYS WEEKEND’ was any Use as He said ‘Wor Lass want to Go’. In 2010 13 of Us went to Blackpool on a Stag Party & a Lad Took his Mrs (What Bloke Takes his Wife on a Stag Party). We were Gonna take the Lad Who was to be Married to a Strip Club but Couldn’t coz of the Lad Who had his Wife there. He sais ‘We can Still Go – Wor Lass can Sit at the Bar’. The Lad Who Arranged the Weekends Blew his Top & said ‘That’ll be Great – 13 Lads Screaming at a Stripper & You’re Mrs’s sat at the Bar – The Stripper willl think You’re Lass’s Gay’. He Replied ‘She’s Not – She’s Married to Me’. The Lad Who Arranged things said ‘We Know that but the Stripper Won’t Know will She’. The Weekend was a Disaster. The Lad’s Wife wanted Us to Go for Trips Up the Tower, to Fleetwood & some Museum when all We Wanted was a Good Stag Party. When We all Got back Home after the Weekend I Told my then Girlfriend One of the Lads had Took his Mrs & She Couldn’t Believe it. In 2011 my Mate Tried to Arrange another Lads Trip to Blackpool & 2 of the Lads said ‘Can Our Mrs’s Go too. The Lad Who Arranged Things said ‘That’s it – I’m Arranging Nowt More – It’s Not a Couple’s Weekend – It’s Supposed to be a Lads Weekend Away – A Few Days Away from Our Other Halves & have a Laugh as a Bunch of Lads – None of Our Wives /Girlfriends Go’.
