HEAR YE, hear ye!
Coffs Harbour's new town crier Dick Frost has taken up the regal role.
Making his first public appearance in official robes this week, Dick gave a "Coffs Harbour cry" in the city centre.
Sworn in to the role by Coffs Harbour Mayor Denise Knight, Dick will become a familiar face at official openings and community events across the Coffs Coast.
A retired primary school principal, Dick also serves as the welfare officer at the Woolgoolga RSL.
"He's going to be a great addition to Coffs Harbour's civic events and many others in the future," Cr Knight said.
Dick takes over in the voluntary position from the late John Kerr.
