Beach Hut 7
The Christmas story is full of angels cropping up in all kinds of circumstances and tonight was the first time they featured in our story.
Hut 73 was put together by a group of people from All Saints church in Hove with angel wings and angel lights decorating everything. The design stretched out beyond the hut creating a kind of landing pad for any stray angels who hadn't been able to find their way home.
This was the first hut this year to feature singing as members of the church sang carols although we didn't sing Hark the Herald Angels Sing. In between singing the performers warmed themselves up with the mulled wine on offer.
The hut floor was filled with jars of light surrounding a central angel who could have been directing operations. We will hear more about archangels later in the month.
The next hut is at the opposite end of the promenade near the lagoon and is number 403.
