It is summer holiday time at Greyfriars. Mr Bunter has arranged for his hopeful son to spend the vacation at his Uncle's boarding house in Folkestone, where he will be expected to make himself useful. However, before the dreadful prospect of work materialises, Mr Billy Butlin makes an appearance. As a result of good luck & a series of coincidences, Mr. Butlin finds himself grateful to the fat owl. The result is an invitation to spend the holiday, free, at Butlin's holiday camp, near Skegness. Stuck out at the village of Ingoldmells, on the North Sea, this resort was advertised under the slogan "Skegness is so bracing!" I suppose "bracing" is as good a euphemism for "cold" as any. Just the thing for Bob Cherry. "Come on you chaps, let's go for a bracing trot, along the bracing beach, in this bracing North Sea wind!"
