  • TV presenter Phil Spencer speaks to ITV News Anglia about 'Grandmas's Little Hut'

Well, how about beach huts? Since the Victorian times the East Anglian coastline has been known for it's colourful wooden huts - somewhere to head for a cuppa on a nippy day, or a place to store the towels and crabbing buckets!

But one very special hut, owned by Joy Reeve has now been crowned 'Beach Hut of the Year'.

Joy uses her hut to raise money for charity by providing welcome hot drinks, especially to those brave enough to dip more than a toe in the water.

TV presenter Phil Spencer, presented Joy with her award, and told ITV News Anglia 'Grandma's Little Hut' is central to the community on the beach at Felixstowe.
