OYEZ! Oyez! Oyez! The twin towns of Fishguard and Goodwick could soon be getting their very own town crier.

The Chamber of Trade of Tourism is behind the search for an individual (male or female) to take on the important role and be the focus of main events and attractions, such as carnivals, the Autumn Festival and cruise ship arrivals.

In return, the Chamber will provide modest fees, travel expenses and official clothing.

Historically a town crier was an officer of the court who made public announcements as required by the court. They were also used to make public announcements in the streets.

They dressed elaborately, by a tradition dating to the 18th century, in a red and gold robe, white breeches, black boots and a tricorne hat.

They carry a hand bell to attract people's attention, as they shout the words "Oyez, Oyez, Oyez!" before making their announcements. It translates to "hear ye," which is a call for silence and attention.

Anyone interested in taking on the role should call Jeremy on 01348 874886 or email jeremy.m@talktalk.net
