WHAT happens in the Med stays in the Med. That’s the unofficial motto of the Club 18-30 - where Slippery Nipples, Sex on the Beach and Screaming Orgasms aren’t just the names of cocktails – but the nightly behaviour of the reps and holidaymakers up for anything. Sun, sex and sand might have dominated the holiday experience - but most party-goers needed another break when they got home to recover from the non-stop partying, drinking and shagging. But what made 18-30 work was that the fortnight in the sun was usually with a bestie or a group of lads and girlfriends. While there is now a question mark dangling over the experience - with the brand under threat of being sold off - meet three women who won’t ever forget their 18-30 holiday experiences. 'It was an orgy': Ibiza San Antonio, July 2008 Gina Clarke, 31, is a married mum of two aged 3 and 6. She runs her own marketing business and lives in Wiltshire.

June 30 holiday
CLUB 18-30 holidays are the original party getaway – and have long been a baptism of fire for many Brits in their youth. The package holiday brand that offers a mix of sunshine, boozing and sex for singles in destinations across Greece, Cyprus, the Balearics and Bulgaria has been a British institution since the 1960s. However it’s now been reported that millennials are avoiding the hedonistic holidays – currently owned by Thomas Cook - in favour exploring the world on their own. It’s goodbye to package holidays and hello to travels that will look a little bit nicer on Instagram. As Thomas Cook reveals they are “exploring options for the future of the brand” we take a look back on the history of Club 18-30 – which could soon be a thing of the past. The package holiday boom Package holidays to the likes of Benidorm and the Greek islands began to take off in the 1960s. And with that came an opening in the market for young people who wanted to … [Read more...] about How the 18-30 holiday became a rite of passage for young Brits – as Millennials turn their backs on the party breaks

A SOUTH Lakeland farming couple will be able to diversify their business after plans for 15 holiday lodges were given the go ahead. Applicants Edward and Ethel Wilson, both 80, sought consent for 15 lodges to be built on an agricultural field at Guides Farm in Flookburgh, which has been in the family since the 1850s. A previous application for 30 holiday lodges had been submitted last June but was withdrawn after South Lakeland District Council's (SLDC) planning committee recommended refusal. Julian Handy, representing the couple at last Thursday's meeting, said he had known the applicants for many years and they were 'diligent farmers'. "It's all about the modern day viability of the farm," he said. "And to make sure that this is continued for generation to generation, one after another, diversification is key. Hence the reason for the application." He said that the scheme had been designed with 'minimal impact' to the landscape and it was a 'sensible' number of lodges. … [Read more...] about Farmers plans to diversify business with holiday lodges get the green light
