Martin & Co Nantwich are pleased to announce their support for the Nantwich Town Crier competition to be held in Nantwich town centre on Saturday 27th July. Over a dozen town criers from across the country will be visiting the town with their consorts, resplendent in their regalia., so it promises to be a colourful as well as a noisy occasion!
Nantwich Office manager Toby Banfield explains: “We first met John Parsons, the Nantwich Town Crier, through our support of other community events, and we were pleased to be able to support this. Our Director Shaun Cafferty is a big believer in giving something back to our local town, which supports us so well He has also helped drum up some publicity for the event, which will be good for the town as a whole, plus there will be a charity collection in support of Hope House Hospice. In 2015 the National Town Crier Championships will be held in Nantwich, which is a great honour and will be a boost for our tourist economy”.
One of the visiting town criers this year is the body double for the giant Hagrid in the Harry Potter films, and stands almost 7 feet tall! Toby remarks:” As local lettings giants, it will be interesting for us to meet the Harry Potter one!”.
