Sean and the New Milton Carnival, Hampshire - 1st August 1986

Sean's employers - McCarthy and Stone (builders of old people's sheltered accommodation) - had built a pirate ship which was entered into several local carnivals during the summers of 1985 and 1986. Nosher tags along to take some photos of the events.
