Church Clock: Thanks And Update

clockA short note to express our thanks for the very kind donations we have received towards the cost of the clock repairs, and also to update everyone about where we are with the repairs, and when we can expect them to take place.

When the clock had its annual inspection in May serious defects were found. Parts of the clock barrel were loose, and the thread of the screws holding it were stripped, and therefore ineffective. Because this part is integral to the winding system, this could fail and damage the clock, and, more seriously, the person winding the clock. So the engineer made it safe by letting the weights run down and, clearly, left instructions that it remain so until such time as repairs had been undertaken. The total cost of the repairs will be £894.00.

Once this became known, many individuals, the Kildwick Parish Meeting and the Farnhill Parish Council have all kindly made donations towards the cost. We are delighted that the sum raised through these gifts amounts to £795.00. We would like to say a huge ‘thank you’ to you all and are immensely grateful for your generosity.
