Keep Off Roof

There is something eccentric about Beach Huts. Not that any of us would realise, as they are part of our history, we have grown up with them and seeing them on beaches is quite normal to us.

Our foreign visitors no doubt wonder why we delight in sitting in sheds. boiling a kettle in all weathers!

As the Milford on Sea beach huts start to be demolished in the long process of rebuilding, a reader kindly send the photo to the left. It is good to see that health & safety extends to signage instructing you to keep off roofs that are simply not there!

Better still is the Union Jack Flag, which conjures up images of a beach hut stalwart sitting the other side, kettle on full whistle, and the flag fluttering to show that an "Englishman's home is his castle" - whatever the adversity!

It is great to be British!
