The work is complete! The three faces have been painted and gilded, and the gleaming hands re-attached; the clock mechanism has been overhauled and the clock re-started. Once again we are enjoying the services of our community time-keeper and its hourly chimes. During the Beer Festival Family Fun Day at 2.00pm on Saturday, October 6th, Bishop Helen-Ann led a short service at which the renovations were dedicated. Our heartfelt thanks go out to the whole community for their generous response to our appeal – and we now have the most beautiful clock faces in all North Yorkshire!!
The work has covered restoration of the three faces – blue background with gold-leafing on the numerals and hands, as well as overhaul and renovation, where needed, of the clock mechanism.
