Beach hut staycation boom

One of the side effects of the lockdowns has been a massive rise in interest in beach huts. For example, The Little Beach Hut Company (which recently changed ownership and is now run by friends Karina Duke and Louise Foo) which runs huts in West Mersea, has just launched special Christmas At The Huts bookings from November 28 to December 31 - they will be decorated with all the trimmings and each booking comes with a complimentary Christmas hamper.

Meanwhile,  Canterbury City Council is looking to build more than 100 new beach huts along the Herne Bay and Whitstable coast in order to raise somewhere in the region of £2 million. Council spokesman Rob Davies told Kent Online that the goal was to capitalise on the booming staycation market and said he thought the new huts would "sell like hot cakes". He added: “One of our key approaches has been to look for income-raising opportunities, which will reduce the level of savings we need to find and help us retain vital front-line services such as rough sleeper work and reducing homelessness."
Once given the green light by planners, the huts should be ready by summer 2021.
