When former town councillor Barry Griffiths was appointed town crier, his first cry was to announce his selection. 
He beat four other contestants and went on to take part in a national competition as part of the Barmote Courts’ 700th anniversary celebrations.

Was he a wise choice?

Town mayor John Hopkinson, Councillors Mary Waterhouse and Charles Richards were not so sure!!!
