New Hornblowing Team Announced

Ripon City Council announces the appointment of two new Hornblowers for the City

Ripon City Council is delighted to announce the appointment of two new members of the hornblowing team.

Allison Clark and Richard Midgley will join the existing hornblowers Wayne Cobbett and Jim Vauvert to complete a team of four hornblowers. Cllr Pauline McHardy, The Right Worshipful The Mayor of Ripon, said we had a number of very strong candidates and decided to appoint two hornblowers. The two candidates that have been chosen were both very impressive and the Council is very pleased to employ them both.

We hope that visitors to the City continue to enjoy the tradition of the Setting of the Watch ceremony on the Market Square
