 Council appoints a new town crier

Nantwich Town Council has a new town crier.

   Familiar face and professional town crier, Devlin Hobson, will revive civic traditions and begin to promote the town with immediate effect.

   Well respected, Devlin is experienced in the field having had previous appointments in Kidsgrove and Middlewich - even filling in occasionally in Nantwich.

  The town crier will greet shoppers and proclaim events, as well as promoting businesses wishing to announce

 

special offers.

   Devlin commented: “I’m proud and honoured to be appointed as Nantwich’s official town crier. 

   "I’m here for everyone in the town and I am keen to promote the town as much as possible.

  I look forward to meeting many of the town’s residents over the forthcoming months.”

 

o  To book an appearance by the town crier contact Nantwich Town Council in the Tourist Information Centre in the Civic Hall.
