Yesterday evening I helped the Mayor entertain a group of  cub scouts from Wraysbury at the Guildhall.  His worship ran a mock council meeting and I tried to explain why we have a town crier in the borough.

Today a friend emailed to say thanks because her two kids were part of the group and they had apparently had a fantastic time.

However,  when she questioned them they still didn’t have a clue what either the mayor or town crier actually do.
