A group of seven town criers from across Lincolnshire and Yorkshire led by our own favourite town crier for Mablethorpe and Sutton on Sea, Roy Palmer are all gathering together for a St George’s Day you will never forget.

Taking place on Wednesday, April 23, town criers from Mablethorpe, Drifield, Belper, Grimsby, Lincoln, Filey and Market Deeping will be accompanying St George on his horse through Mablethorpe and Sutton on Sea.

The procession will depart from The Beck car park at around 10.15am where they will head up to Mablethorpe High Street and end up at the corner of the Factory Shop where each town crier will make a proclamation.

They will all then head off to Sutton on Sea war memorial for 12noon.

This day is definitely one for your diaries and will be an occasion not to be missed.

All of the town criers and their escorts will be smartly dressed and filling the town with colour.

The Linkage Community Trust will also have people dressed up in the traditional entire from the era of St George.

With St George’s Day being a very patriotic occasion, why not go along on the day with an England in hand, waving and cheering and making the most out of this very special day.

Bring the customary tradition of flying of the English flag back to life.
