DEVLIN HOBSON WINS NANTWICH TOWN CRIER COMPETITION 2014

Photo: Devlin Hobson
The current Kidsgrove Town Crier Devlin Hobson is pictured here with his wife Jenny at the Nantwich Town Crier Competition, which he won on the 26th July with the proverbial flying colours. As very few people can fail to have gathered by now Devlin would like to be the Town Crier for Middlewich, reviving a tradition which goes back for centuries and only ended as relatively recently as the early twentieth century. Devlin provides his own costumes and regalia and writes his own material and would make himself available for any civic occasions and local events which the Town Council asks him to. All at very little cost to the people of Middlewich. 
He would also act as an ambassador for the town, letting people at events all over the country know what Middlewich has to offer.

The Nantwich Competition has only been been running for a few years and most of the shields here are awaiting the names of future winners. Devlin's name will be engraved on one of them  soon, and he tells us that his only regret is that the inscription will say 'Kidsgrove' rather than 'Middlewich'.
