The competition, which is held every two years attracted criers from afar as Cheshire, Devon and Wales who competed over two rounds of proclamations which were judged for volume, clarity, diction and inflection.

Ken (in red but without his hat in the middle of the picture) was delighted to have won and gave fulsome praise to the host crier Christian Ashdown (centre wearing top hat) for putting on what all agreed was an excellent and enjoyable competition.
