Beach Hut 8

Aldrington school and Beyond team member Kirsty Tyler did a fantastic job tonight turning hut 425 into a small beach front church.
For the last few weeks the after school art club run by Laura Thaxter has been creating coloured lanterns using tissue paper and jam jars.   

These sat at the foot of a beautiful 'stained glass' window created using the same technique - layers and layers of tissue paper and PVA built up to create a beautiful skin of colour.

Huge crowds turned up to hear the school choir sing a selection of Christmas songs and to marvel at the shrine of light and colour shining out into the darkness.

Next time we're at hut 395 with a similar theme being created by St. Luke's Prestonville who have also been making lanterns.
