Town crier fundraising events at cricket club

FROME’S town crier, Mike Bishop, will soon be holding two fundraising events to raise money for his town crier festival in the summer.

The 12th annual Frome Town Crier festival is planned for 16th June, and Mike and his team need £1,400 to put on the show.

The first event to raise money will be on Thursday 11th January with an evening of bingo at Frome Cricket Club – eyes down at 8pm.

The second event is a new idea from Mike and involves racing fluffy dogs on a race track made by Mike.

“You can buy one of the six dogs in each of the races, and also bet on each dog in an organised tote,” said Mike. “I can guarantee that you will all have a good time and want to come back for another race night!”

The first Dog Race Night will be on Friday 26th January at the Frome Cricket Club – first race at 7.30pm.

Mike said, “If anyone wishes to run a race night for their funds, I will bring the track and dogs along to your venue, and organise the evening for a donation to the Town Crier Festival.”
