Barry is currently having a knee operation so he will not be out and about in his role as Town Crier for Blackpool this Christmas. A card or phone call from his friendly fellow criers would definitely be appreciated.
Frank’s funeral will be held at 11.00a, on Friday 12th December 2014 at the parish church in Carnforth. Please could criers attending inform Frank’s widow June.
If you cannot attend at this busy time of year, we know that cards of condolence would be gratefully received.
Sad news reached us this morning of the passing of Frank Barton, Town Crier of Carnforth. Rest in Peace.
Booking available in Dagenham on 22nd November. If any criers are interested, please contact Peter Dauncey 01225 766217 for more details.
Congratulations to Devlin Hobson, town crier of Middlewich on winning the 62 National Town Criers championship at Hastings on Saturday 18th October.
The Guild has been contacted by someone looking to hire a town crier for a Christmas event for a local
shopping centre (in Middlesbrough). The theme is to be old fashioned traditional Christmas. The event is a Christmas Market being held on Saturday 6th December.
