European Town Criers' Championship

Back to Mayoral links Town Criers' Championship 15 July 2000 Home

From Thursday 13 July to Sunday 16 July 2000, Tavistock will host the European Town Criers' Championship. On 17 May, I received the Charter for the Championship from the Chairman of the Town Criers' Guild. This was the last ceremony for which I wore the Mayor's ceremonial robes. I handed over the Mayoralty to my successor, Cllr Mrs Judith Williams, at the Town Council's AGM on Tuesday 23 May.

These photographs were taken during the Charter Ceremony.
