The bells were ringing at hut 116 tonight as we listened to Ding, Dong, Merrily on High.

Jim and Janice put a lot of work into the decoration of their hut including a custom made light up bell which hung above the hut on a specially fabricated rig.  The great advantage of this was that the bell was visible from all around, including behind the hut, making it easy for people approaching from the Kingsway to find us.

Inside the hut were more bells, including some handbells that the children really enjoyed playing with and in the centre of everything was a perpetually snowing Christmas tree!

It was a beautifully clear, cold, still night which gave us a wonderful opportunity to watch the full moon rise over Brighton and join the street lights and Christmas lights of Brighton and Hove.

For once the moon appeared so large that you can even see it in the photograph below.

The next hut is back on the Westward side of the King Alfred leisure centre at hut number 253
