Ryan's Beach Hut of the Year 2020 in association with Millie's Beach Huts - Entry is now closed

Mon 21st Sep 20


Ryan's are excited to announce our first Beach Hut of the Year competition!

In association with Millie's Beach Huts we are looking to crown our first Beach Hut of the Year.

It was always our intention to run a competition this year but with the Coronavirus outbreak and the subsequent lockdown our plans had to be put on hold. Now that lockdown is easing and after much consideration, we have decided to launch the competition.

We appreciate that not everyone has been able to return to their huts, but we are hoping that you will all be able to enjoy them soon. However, if that is not the case we will accept pictures taken prior to the lockdown.

Our competition is simple to enter, in 200 words or less tell us why you think your hut is the best. We want to hear your beach hut stories, it could be a restoration project, a place that brings family together, a sanctuary for getting over illness or escaping life's daily stresses, a life long dream, a come back from storm damage or an escape during the current pandemic. You may have used your hut to raise money for charity, the possibilities are endless.

Our competition really is open to all beach hut owners.

Our competition is now closed - we will be announcing our winners shortly.

What can I win?
