A much loved Cleveleys landmark has been restored and maintained for the future, and it's all thanks to the strength and efforts of the local community with a bit of help from our clockmakers.
When asking around the community prior to the project there was a great deal of speculation to when the bus shelter’s edifice was built, other than the consensus that it was going on 100 years old.
The community was also unsure when three of the clock dials went missing, or when the final clock dial’s hands stopped.
The shelter's recent restoration included the structure being repainted, re-roofed and cleaned up, and thanks to community member’s generous donations and support the four clock dials of the turret clock at the top are now in full working order for many years to come.
On 20 November the clock shelter was officially opened and declared completed at a small event prior to the Light Up a Life Christmas Switch On Event – click here to jump to the website to view progress photos of the clock restoration and a short clip of the finished shelter ceremony.
