Mayor and town crier welcome Leek back to life

Leek Town Mayor, Stephen Wales joined the Leek Town Crier, Bill Lomas to welcome the re-opening of the traditional Wednesday market. This was Bill’s first outing in his green regalia since lockdown rules were introduced in November.

Bill had a special welcome back call “LEEK ALIVE’ for the occasion. And as usual. a warm reception from Leekensiens and donations starting to roll in once again to support Bill’s charity fundraising.

A number of town councillors joined Bill during the day as well as Stephen Wales.

“It was a beautiful day,” said Stephen. It was good to see the market up and running again.”

All going well, Bill will be back in Derby Street on Saturday with his usual pocket full of treats for the kids. Listen to Bill’s cry below
