We are pleased to announce that our very own Chard Town Crier, Stuart Cumming, gained FIRST PLACE at the Topsham Town Crier Competition! Well done Stuart!
Stuart says ‘This was part of Topsham Charter Day. There were 14 Criers competing from the South West to Wales, Bromyard and Nuneaton among others. The theme of the day was the roaring twenties so my crying was written accordingly using my usual style of rhyming couplets. I was accompanied by my wife Viv dressed in all her finery too. Don’t forget the Young Persons Town Crier competition takes place on the 31st of August at twelve noon, Holyrood Street, Chard.’
