Hut 362 tonight contained a whole city in miniature as the children of Aldrington school created their own version of O Little Town of Bethlehem.  The hut contained a whole city of little houses, each burning with a little light.

Floating serenely above the whole city was an enormous star, marking the spot directly above a stable which glowed with a heavenly light.  Behind the star was a simple backdrop of sparkling stars, glittering in the gloom of the night as they reflected the light from all around.

The weather was calm as well and we had another clear, calm evening which matched the peace and simplicity of hut 362.

The stillness and quiet really enhanced the singing of the school choir who performed a number of Christmas carols.

The next hut is close to the King Alfred leisure centre and is number 177.
