A talk about Town Criers over a glass of wine - Wed 13th Dec

The next meeting of the Wivenhoe History Group takes place on Wed 13th Dec at 7.30pm upstairs in the Wivenhoe Sailing Club. Our guest speaker is Bob Needham who will talk about the History of Town Criers.  Bob has been Town Crier in Colchester for a long time and has previously won the European Town Crier Competition for the loudest voice.  He is well known in Wivenhoe as a local Town Councillor and is currently Deputy Mayor.

As ever, non-members will be made very welcome at this meeting.  There is a charge of £5 per person payable at the door which includes a glass of wine and a mince pie.
