Ron Amey

Ron Amey is the Town Crier of Waverly, Nova Scotia, an art he has practiced for the past 24 years. He has served as Yarmouth's Town Crier for a decade, and has represented Waverly for the past 14 years. He is also the Honourary Crier for the Borough of Waverley, Godalming, Surrey, England. His voice has cried out through out the Maritimes as well as in England, Germany, Belgium, The United States of America, Bermuda, Sydney, BC and Ontario.

Ron cuts a dashing figure dressed in his uniform. His attire is as authentic as possible, from his 150 year old Black Beaver Top Hat, to his black leather shoes with handmade buckles. The black 3/4 length English style cape, contrasts nicely with the blue frock coat and paisley vest. The billowing sleeves with lace cuffs and matching jabot, tucked into grey knickers, buckled at the knee, and white stockings, complete the garments of an early 18th century British Empire. His accessories are a 147 year old gold pocket watch, a 178 year brass bell, and a hand tooled leather scroll.
