Tonight was a special night as the theme carol was O Holy Night, a beautiful carol which has gained great popularity in recent years but is quite hard to perform well.

The opening lines are:

O Holy night,
The stars are burning brightly
It is the dawn of our dear Saviours birth.

Hut 418 was a vision of that starlit light come to earth in the form of sparkling lanterns that lit up the darkness of the night in homage to Jesus, the light of the world.

The simplicity of the light was enhanced by a fairly strong wind tonight which gently rocked the hanging lanterns, giving us a constant reminder of the creativity of God.

The next hut is the final one for this year and there will be lots going on.  In particular the Mayor of Brigton & Hove, Cllr. Brian Fitch will come to the hut to present Martin Poole with a Points of Light award from the Prime Minster.  More of this to follow later.
