Tonight was the first night when it was actually raining as we opened hut 203 at 5.30 but the rain was fairly light and sporadic and it didn't deter people from turning up and we had a good number of visitors from Brighton & Hove, Sussex and London.
Clare and Angie had set up a star themed brazier blazing away with timber from the summer wreck which covered our beaches with wood for a few months.
As well as the mince pies and mulled wine they'd also baked special beach hut biscuits complete with their beach hut number. These were so nice some people were taking them home as souvenirs rather than eat them there and then.
The theme was Silent Night and the families connected with this hut were great at leading us in singing that and a few other carols during our hour at the beach.
The next hut is at the lagoon end and is number 382.
