Here’s a new job that might be right up your street – Lichfield needs a new town crier. Now I’m not too sure what the qualifications are, but this is one tradition which I’m all for keeping (unlike the Bower Queen). If Lichfield fancies itself as a historic city then a town crier is a must. But just who could we get to ring the bell and call us all to order?
