Town Crier of Halifax and Hebden Bridge, Les Cutts, was commended for his support of his home towns, by being voted the Best Ambassador for his town at the All British Championship of the Loyal Company of Town Criers, in Banbury, Oxfordshire.

Les regaled the crowded market place of Banbury with why they should visit Halifax and brought joy and laughter to both tourists and locals who had poured into the town to witness see Town Criers from Northumberland to Newmarket vying with each other.

Messages of congratulations from Her Majesty the Queen and HRH The Prince of Wales were also received.
