Karen Roper, Town Clerk said that “Percy had served Wellington with great distinction and I am well aware that he took great pride in the historic role as Town Crier, was an extremely good representative of the Town and he is greatly missed. He will be a very hard person to follow but hopefully we will find a replacement who will undertake this important civic position.”
