Going back in time

While most are embracing new social media technologies for spreading information, some are heading in the opposite direction.

Liverpool has appointed the city’s first official town crier for over 200 years, following auditions held outside Liverpool Town Hall. Terry Stubbings, aged 65 years, is a former town crier for Lincoln and will now represent Liverpool at the Huddersfield Town Crier competition.

Mr Stubbings duties will include taking part in civic and ceremonial events as well as welcoming passengers arriving at Liverpool’s Cruise Liner Terminal.
