The members of Parkham Women’s Institute like to make their meetings a bit of fun by holding a light-hearted competition. So when a visiting speaker came to give a talk about piracy, they decided to dress up as Long John Silvers and Captain Hooks, complete with eye patches, plastic cutlasses and even a toy parrot. However, the WI ladies were left red-faced when it turned out that their guest had actually been booked to give an account of his terrifying experiences of being held hostage by Somali pirates.
