8th December - Hut 225

Tonight we were in Heaven, in all sorts of ways.  A Heavenly Hut, heavenly company, heavenly weather, it couldn't have been a more perfect night.

The White family turned their hut into a vision of heaven with myriads of angels made from toilet rolls and doilies, each one created by a family or made in memory of a loved one.  This was a special time to remember Felix White, much loved son of Matt and Colleen and brother of Grace and Elliott, now playing with the angels.

Each angel had its own personality and some had heartfelt dedications written on labels attached to them.

The whole scene was set on a gauzy backdrop lit by an enormous star of tinsel and Christmas lights.

The weather continued to be kind to us and so many people turned up that we ran out of refreshments about halfway through the hour, even though we had prepared a double amount.

Our next hut will feature the Inn and the Innkeeper as the letter for the day is I.  The number to come to is 177.
