Clock face refurbishment

Clock face scaffolding

The face of our clock is getting some much-needed attention this week. Look out for Mick up on the scaffolding as he re-gilds the numbers and restores a lovely blue on the dial! We’re grateful to an anonymous donor who has enabled this to happen.

(And hopefully, soon, we’ll get the mechanism of the clock working properly and reliably again…)
