Clock Work!!

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 can enjoy the services of our community time-keeper and its hourly chimes.  There will be a formal ceremony during the Beer Festival Fun Day on Saturday, October 6th, at which Bishop Helen-Ann will dedicate the renovations.  More precise information will be made available about that in due course.  Our heartfelt thanks go out to the whole community for their generous response to our appeal.

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.
