The Naming of the Pirate Ship and a Beer in the Trowel and Hammer, Brome and Cotton, Suffolk - 4th April 2015

It's Jimmy's birthday, so there's a bit of a get-together of some of the "old gang" down the Cotton Trowel and Hammer. Later, the Oaksmere's pirate ship is officially named, following a competition to choose a suitable moniker.
