The robes were sponsored by Gina and Ray Lovegrove of the Manor Lodge Carehome, and made by Sarah Radford.

Roger said: “I wanted something regal, and something true to what would have been worn by an 18th century gentleman.

“I think I am the only town crier to be dressed in purple.”

“He added: “I want to thank Gina, Ray and Sarah – this is the second set of robes I have had made and I am very grateful.”

Roger also wore his special ‘Christmas’ robe.

- he has four others, for Easter, Valentines Day, breast cancer and for Hallowe’en.
