A Town Crier is gearing up to play his part in commemorative events this weekend.
Leek Town Crier Bill Lomas will be at the Nicholson War Memorial in Leek at 7.05pm on Sunday November 11 to perform ‘A Cry For Peace Around the World.’
Bill said: “This cry is being carried out by more than 100 town criers around the world.
“It will start in New Zealand and, as it’s done at the same time, will cause a ripple effect as it travels around the world.”
Bill said that he feels very proud to be taking an individual role in Leek’s commemorations of the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.
