Lenham Town Crier
Having been born and bred in Lenham and living in the Village for the first 18 years of my life it wasn’t until I returned to the Village in 1991 at the age of 30 that I became a little more involved in Village life.
It was in the Dog and Bear (pint in hand) that
I heard there was a ‘Town Crier’s’ Competition and as
I was told that I had the biggest mouth in the Village this was a challenge
I just couldn’t resist! Subsequently I won the Competition against
some stiff opposition and was declared Lenham’s Town Crier for the
following year. With very few call outs in 1992; I competed at the May
Day Craft Fair and won again, so continuing as Town Crier. In 1993 again
at the May Day Craft Fair, nobody wanted to compete against me!
