Marlborough's Marvellous Mike Tupman
Congratulations to Marlborough's Town Cryer, Mike Tupman, who was crowned the Champion Town Crier of Wiltshire at Bowood House on Saturday, 6th August.
Mike, better known to locals as 'Tuppers', took over the bell from long-serving Alfie Johnson on 7th March and his first official 'shout' was at the Mayor Making ceremony in May. He went along to Bowood expecting to pick up tips rather than the top prize.
Well done Mike!

Bag it and bin it
It would be a shame to encounter dog mess while out and about. Don't forget you can report dog fouling problems via the Wiltshire Council reporting tool (you can download the App to your phone). The Dogs Trust has more info on this unpleasant issue via their Big Scoop campaign.
