Bridlington’s town crier has been in fine voice today (April 23) to celebrate St George’s Day.

Pictured is town crier David Hinde performing a patriotic proclamation outside the harbour museum to mark the day.

He also performed the cry, which he said was well received by passers by, outside the Spa Bridlington.

Mr Hinde said: “Not enough goes on to celebrate St George’s Day so I decided to do this cry to mark the day like we did for the Olympics.”

“I chose to do it outside the harbour museum because I’m always trying to make sure the benefits of the crier are spread around the whole town and it was time I did something at the harbour,” he added.

The cry was: “Oyez, Oyez, Oyez. Today is special, it’s St George’s Day - A day for the English to be proud. A day when a Yorkshire town crier can shout this out loud, for 23 April in every year. With this special flag we raise a cheer, to St George’s Day. Hip, hip, hooray to St George’s Day, hip, hip, hooray, God save the Queen.”
