Search back on for a new town crier in Ilkley
8:00am Wednesday 9th April 2014 in News
The search is back on for a new Ilkley town crier following the retirement of long-serving figure Chris Richards.
Mr Richards stood down in December after a decade in the role, reading the Yorkshire Day declaration and many other public duties.
Ilkley Parish Council has previously advertised the role, but only one candidate came forward. It hopes a renewed call will kindle interest locally and from further afield.
It was suggested Ilkley may be able to share the services of a town crier from another area, although there could be a clash of engagement dates, such as Yorkshire Day, August 1.
Contact the parish council clerk’s office on (01943) 436212 or e-mail ilkleypc@bradford.
