Town Crier News

28 November 2018

Some of you may have seen recent articles in the daily papers that our Rent Ceremony town crier, Alan Myatt, was attacked by three youths who tried to steal his hat and wig when he was leaving an official appearance in Gloucester. He fought them off but fell and injured his knee and shoulder. Fortunately he is now fully recovered, but sadly his bell is irreparably cracked. The good news is that his supporters launched a crowdfunding page which has raised enough money to buy Alan two new bells. We look forward to seeing Alan again at the 2019 Rent Ceremony.
