Town Crier visits Warwick School to give announcement in historical style

Ian Hughes 4th Nov, 2017

OYEZ! oyez, oyez! Warwick School pupils received an annual news announcement in true historical style.

Warwick Town Crier Michael Reddy requested the headmaster grant permission for an extra week’s holiday at half-term for the boys. The granting of which was greeted with a big cheer from the gathered pupils.

The traditional invitation to the town crier is one that dates back to at least 1912.

Mr Reddy also collected £350 donated by pupils to the mayor’s charity, which this year was Molly Olly’s Wishes, a local charity which works to support children with terminal or life threatening illnesses and their families to help with their emotional well-being.
