Geoff Sheasby will compete in the World Town Crier Championships in Chester this August.

The 64 year old will face 24 other entrants from 10 countries around the world. Contestants will travel to Chester to compete from places as far away as the USA, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Germany, Holland. Some will come from places a bit closer to home such as Wales, the Channel Islands and Ireland.

The tournament lasts for a full week before a Town Crier is named the best Town Crier in the world.

Mr Sheasby told Minster FM he is confident he can win.
