The Mayor of Royston should have kept an eye on his twinkling gold chains as he posed for a photo with two very convincing pirates.
Young Alexander Williams (pictured here with his twin Arabella) was crowned best dressed pirate along with Sian Fitzsimon at the town’s Pirate Day last month.
Alexander lives in nearby Hinxton, and regularly visits his grandparents in Royston.
He has taken a keen interest in pirates since he was very small.
Pirate-spotting is a major activity when he’s aboard his grandparents’ boat and the twins are also seasoned treasure-hunters. X has marked several spots in the 400-year-old barn where they race around searching for clues.

“Since then, Royston’s Mayor, Councillor Ben Lewis, has taken time out of his busy schedule to undertake the difficult task of selecting a best costume winner.
