Our local clock on St Luke’s tower, and key local landmark, is always set at just about 12 o’clock. There is a campaign to raise £37k to get this Vulliamy clock, dating back to 1827, working again.
Trusts have donated most of the money required and only another £8k is needed to start the works. To help get the clock working again please donate what you can through : https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/stlukesclock
For more details on the history of the clock and restoration project see: http://synchronome.org.uk/stlukes.pdf
