Pocklington town crier Geoff Sheasby is shouting loud and proud about Pocklington now he has a new ‘cry’ to proclaim.
The Pocklington Post and the town crier asked readers to compose a home cry for Geoff to proclaim at the World Town Crier’s Tournament in Chester next month, and Bielby resident John Peel’s entry has been chosen as the winner.
By showcasing his creative writing skills and winning the competition, John has earned himself a £50 cash prize.
The difficult decision of choosing the best entry was made by Geoff and Pocklington Post Editor Ed Asquith.
Full story in this week’s (10 July) Pocklington Post.
