Argh me hearties! We celebrated Harry Paye Day with the rest of Poole on the 15th of June. Every year the community celebrates Harry Paye – he was a pirate in the 1500s, who brought tons of French loot to Poole and this year was the 600th anniversary of his celebration.
With a parade, canons, fancy dress and lots of rum, Poole Quay was the place to be. We all loved the opportunity for a bit of fancy dress and general debauchery. Who doesn’t like dressing as a pirate and/or a mermaid for the day?!
