Bermuda’s Town Criers Win Best Dressed Award

July 30, 2013

Bermuda’s Town Criers participated in the Kingsbridge and Darmouth Town Criers Competition while in the UK to take part in the  Somers Day celebration in Lyme Regis, with both the St. George’s and Hamilton’s Town Criers winning the best dressed awards.

The Town Criers completed two cries on July 27 in Kingsbridge, and one in Darmouth on July 28. There were a total of fourteen Town Criers attending this year’s competition.

Both St. George’s Town Crier David Frith and Hamilton’s Town Crier Ed Christopher won best dressed Town Crier awards.

Accompanying the town criers were former St. George’s Mayor Mariea Caisey, Deputy Mayor Quinell Francis and fellow St. Georgians Larry and Adrianna Roberts, and artist Jill Amos Raine.

“The group had a wonderful time at the Town Crier Competition and we are hoping to be able to host a Town Crier’s Competition in Bermuda in 2015,” St George’s Deputy Mayor Quinell Francis said.

The Bermuda flag can be seen flying in Lyme Regis — St. George’s twin town — where the parade will wind its way from Lyme’s Langmoor Gardens on July 31, ending with a formal celebration of Sir George Somers.

    Correction, European history was forced on black people, black history was well established when Europeans where still learning how to hunt in the Caucus Mountains.
