The Times does us proud today

I often think that The Times doesn’t know this part of the world exists.   But today they have done us proud.   There’s a picture of The Maldon Mud Race last Sunday and a picture of sb Marjorie in the Medway Match last Saturday.   Rob Powell’s picture I think, (please confirm).   I like the caption too.   It says “…. the Medway Barge Match, the first of seven races this summer which celebrate the historic role of barges.”
