Christchurch County Council were given planning permission for 11 new Beach Huts at Friars Cliff, to satisfy the ever increasing demand for Huts at this location.

Following a successful tender, Poultons received the order to manufacture the Huts.  The Huts are of a traditional construction with pastel colours. The huts took about a week to make and a week to paint, but the buildings were erected in two days, the huts were sold within two days.

The following year the opportunity arose again and Poultons won the contract for the second year running for another 11 beach huts, just across the beach from the others.
