Oyez, oyez

The cry of the Town Crier is oyez, oyez, or hear ye. The Town Crier, also called a bellman, was a town official  who attracted attention to public announcements and proclamations. The earlier bellman was a night watchman whose duty was to parade the streets at night and call out the hours.

We are not town officials and we won’t confine our observations to the night but we will act as watchmen and comment on the goings on about the Town of Wolfville.
