7th December - Hut 362


Tonight was full of glory as we beheld a hut full of beautiful cardboard sheep and shepherds created by the art club at Aldrington school under the supervision of Kirsty Tyler.

They were all giving glory to God following the lead of a little angel hanging from the sky.

Kirsty is part of the Beyond team and has specialised in cardboard artwork before having produced a marvellous moving nativity scene on the theme of I saw three ships come sailing in to Brighton.  She is doing a hut of her own creation on Friday 13th December.

All these animals were made from scratch using old cardboard boxes.

There was even a black sheep brazenly sitting out in front of the others.

Loads of people came down and we were also treated to the children singing some Christmas songs as part of the entertainment.

Earlier in the day we had a slight panic when we realised that we had got the hut number slightly wrong as we thought we were going to 364 but actually we were in 362.  Fortunately they were close enough together for no-one to notice the difference (we hope!).

The next hut is down near The View - number 225 and will feature Hordes of Herald angels, including some made in memory of those who are no longer with us.
