The Town of Manteo received a delightful, unexpected visitor from Bideford, England yesterday evening — town crier Jim Weeks — who will be delivering a traditional “cry” today, Wednesday, September 28, at Town Hall at 2:00 p.m.
The Town notes that they will be capturing photos and filming Mr. Weeks to share on their social media in case individuals are unable to make it.
