PCSOs Trudy Sharman and Amy Cowan

A missing tarpaulinBy the time we got to Orford this morning PCSOs Trudy Sharman and Amy Cowan had already found two customers, Chris had lost a tarpaulin stolen from his boatyard and a second boatyard had lost cables (we suspect cables in the nautical sense).  The PCSOs were spending the day visiting Orford, Bawdsey, Ramsholt and Woodbridge to increase the awareness of Marine Watch because of recent crimes.

oyster people for some years apparently.  So we walked back to the King's Head which despite being run by Hotel Inspector Ruth Watson was surprisingly unpretentious, the food excellent, not that expensive and very generous in quantity, and the Adnams Broadside (always a dodgy one that, in most pubs how long has it been in the pipes?) in perfect condition.  Gets a tick in our book.
