ALFORD will sadly be a little bit quieter this year after Alford’s Town Crier Mike Adams hung up his bell at the end of 2011.
Mike has represented Alford at National competitions and his fame spread all over the area and beyond, being asked to cry at events in Mablethorpe and Spilsby among others.
“His unique charm and cheerfulness will be greatly missed and he has set a very high benchmark for any future Town Crier,” said a spokesperson for Alford Town Council
“A competition to find a new Town Crier will take place this year,” they added.
