MABLETHORPE’S town crier Roy Palmer was named best dressed crier at the annual competition in Crewkerne.

Roy went down to Somerset for the contest along with 14 of his fellow criers, and made two proclamations, one about his home town, and one about St George’s Day.

His striking blue regalia was enough to earn him the best dressed gong.

He grabbed fifth in the bidding for the Crewkerne Bellman Trophy, the top overall award.
