Pocklington town crier Geoff Sheasby will be at his blaring best when he competes in the World Town Crier Tournament this month.

Geoff will be supported at the competition in Chester, from 18 to 25 August, by his wife Diane, who will be wearing a specially made costume, authentic in 18th century style.

Geoff is looking forward to promoting Pocklington on a global stage.

He said: “I assure the Pocklington populace that I will proclaim to the best of my ability.”
