Travelling Clock!

For a very long time, the clock on top of the Village Hall has failed to work, only being right twice a day!   However, the Village Hall committee worked tirelessly, firstly trying to get it to work with new bearings to the motor, but this was  unsuccessful.

So, we contacted the few companies that construct tower clocks.

The outcome was been the construction of a replica clock and tower from a company in Teynham.  Now this is where the name travelling clock arises.  It left Teynham bound for Temple Ewell, but It didn’t arrive although Teynham to Temple Ewell is not very far.

Whilst we waited, it headed north through Scotland, and on to a Ferry for Northern Ireland.  On arrival at its new destination (said to be near Belfast the driver said!!) it then saw the error of its ways, while we waited and waited totally unaware of the detour taken!

But eventually, via port Lympne Business Park, it arrived on November 21st 2023.

With a little persuasion off came its roof and by removing our letter box cage and one door handle it came into the hall and is now stored next to the kitchen awaiting installation.  

Donations towards the cost from the village would be welcomed.

Geoff Roberts,  Village Hall Chairman
