VICTOR HARBOR – Victor Harbor Town Crier Mike Willett travelled to compete in the Australasian Guild Town Crying championships in central Victoria. 

Competing against Criers from Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland, Mike successfully retained his title of Champion Senior Crier for the third year in a row.

Competing in a tough field, Mike also placed third in the Champion of Champions category. The championship requires criers to prepare and deliver a ‘cry’ about their home town, which gives Mike the opportunity to promote Victor Harbor. A guild AGM was held during the event and Mike gained the honour of being elected a life member for services rendered to the guild over his 18 years as a town crier.
