The holder of what’s believed to be Petersfield’s first ever Town Crier role will be decided at a public event in Rams Walk at 12 midday on 28 January 2023. Or, as the Town Council would instruct the crier to proclaim: “Oyez, Oyez, Oyez, Let it be known, that on this day, January the twenty-eighth two thousand and twenty-three at midday, the historic market town of Petersfield in Hampshire will appoint its first Town Crier. Such a person will be of good local standing, representing the venerable town of Petersfield with pride, honour, and civility. Promoting not only the proclamations of the town council, but also the good works of local charities and commerce. They will give a cheerful welcome to visitors and guests of the town alike. They will do all these things with good grace and a generous countenance, befitting their noble status and as a friend to all who think well of Petersfield. God Save the King.”
