To open the annual Twickenham Riverside Festival – this year dubbed the Twickenham Riverside Jubilee Festival because the Queen – there is a tug of war between some of the local drinking establishments for bragging rights and a trophy of sorts. The Barmy Arms (hosting the event), The Cabbage Patch (a really nice pub with a great folk club), and a third, independent team called the Fat Boys.
It was a thrilling contest, with – ah heck, I can’t remember what happened. All I know is the team from The Cabbage Patch won; if if you’re wanting to know which ones they are, they’re the only ones that look like a team in the gallery below.
I’d also like to apologise to my email and WordPress subscribers for the ‘false start’ you got a couple of days ago. It turns out there is a keyboard shortcut to publish WordPress posts. I don’t know what it is, but I managed to push it. This is the real post this time!
