New Years Eve Outdoors

What do you think when you think about New Year’s Eve? Perhaps it conjures up images of battling the crowds in Central London, waiting around in the cold for several hours while guzzling tinnies of Red Stripe, trying in vain to find a pub that will let you use their toilets, losing your friends as…
