The wind was up again tonight so it was quite blustery down on the seafront but that didn't stop over 100 people coming to see the hut and share a mince pie and some warming drinks.

We were in hut 449, the most Westerly of all the huts in this year's calendar and right up at the darkest end of Hove Lagoon.  The hut was a beacon of light in the darkness and the scene inside had a ethereal quality almost as though the shepherds were floating on a cloud, which they probably were when the heard the angels good news.

The theme carol was 'While Shepherds Watched their Flocks by Night' and the hut came complete with rustic shepherd, a couple of sheep, a herald angel, a small town and a signpost telling us that we were three miles from Bethlehem and 25 miles from Jerusalem.

We're getting close to Christmas now with only two huts left.  The next hut is number 418 and our final hut on Christmas Eve will be a great night with a visit from the Mayor of Brighton & Hove to make a special presentation.
