London’s Town Crier Peter Moore, who entertains the Wimbledon crowds every year, had his robes tragically eaten by maggots in the hold of a plane after travelling back from abroad.
Merton, the host Council to the Wimbledon fortnight is the first authority Peter became town crier for, in exchange for the upkeep of his robes. The Mayor of Merton, Councillor Stuart Pickover will present the new Ede and Ravenscroft robes to Peter before play begins on Tuesday.
