O Yez, the old town criers didn't need a mike. Looks a nice day but not many people about.

Tom, Bennielechat has put videos of the re-enactment parade and the four gun salute from the tower of All Saints church on the Forum under the General Board, they are worth viewing.

Thanks for your comments.
Cyril, there` are very good video`s on You Tube showing everything that the Sealed Knot did last Saturday. The two cannons on the Piazza were not allowed to fire because of possible damage to the library glass.
