You may have noticed that our lovely clock tower at Lowman Green has stopped at exactly 12 o’clock……!
Our clock tower is certainly unique and was built just for our Town, this means that when we need repairs completing they can take that little bit longer. The original clock maker - Smith of Derby have taken away a faulty part which has been causing the clock to lose time. A new part needs to be specially manufactured at their workshop in Derby to rectify the issue. We don’t currently have a timescale on how long this will take, but ask you to bear with us - we hope the clock will be back up and running very soon……!
The Town Council offices will be closing at 1pm on Monday 24th December 2018 Christmas Eve, they will then remain closed until Friday 28th December 2018, when the Town Clerk’s office will be open from 9am until 1pm on that day.
