A Town Crier has scooped the “Best Content of Cry” award in the British Championship’s.
In national competitions organised by the Loyal Company of Town Criers, Great Harwood Town Crier, Rawden Kerr has gained his third national accolade in the last three years.
In 2021, when Town Crying was banned during lockdown, he came runner-up in the “Silent Cry competition”.

Earlier this year, his cry for the Coronation of King Charles III was accepted by the Association and used by many Town Criers up and down the country. Rawden, himself, cried it seven times over the Coronation weekend.
Last weekend, in Halifax, he scooped the award in the British Championship’s “Best Content of Cry”.
The Great Harwood Civic Society is very proud of its Town Crier – an “Arroder” (ie a person born in Great Harwood), who now lives in Clayton-Le-Moors and who continually puts our town on the map as he is called upon to officiate at events, not only throughout Hyndburn, but also in other parts of East Lancashire.
