Oyez, Oyez, Oyez…..
A rousing call has gone out – could you be Wellington’s next Town Crier?
Do you fancy being able to shout about the regeneration of the town?
Liam has done a splendid job for the last 2 years and has sadly decided to hang up his bell so we need a replacement!
- someone who is enthusiastic about Wellington
- someone who is outgoing (man or woman) who has a jovial and polite
personality and a reasonable knowledge and understanding of the history of
- to write a relevant cry each time they perform, with each one beginning ‘Oyez, Oyez, Oyez’ and ending with God save the Queen.
- the town crier is expected to attend all major events such as the Wellington
Festival in May and Christmas in Wellington at the end of November, as
well as various events in the town.
The voluntary position is for one year initially and the council supplies the cloak, hat and bell. It’s a great role!
