We just wanted to give an update on the repairs to the Church Clock, the repair of which many of you supported on our Gift Day last October.
We are currently waiting for a new Automatic Winding Mechanism to be manufactured which will increase the reliability of the clock. This unit is costing £2576, and these are made to order, but will ensure that the clock is more reliable and will run more accurately once it has been fitted. The winder has been on order for quite a while now but, as with most companies at the moment, there are huge delays in production due to the effects of the national lock-down and a subsequent build-up of back-orders.
We are hoping that the unit will be available before too long and that it will be able to be installed shortly after that, so thank you for your support and your patience! Hopefully we should all be hearing those wonderful chimes before too long!
