It’s been a busy last few weeks for our Clockmakers around the country, whose work has included the four-man team heading down to St Ives on the North Coast of Cornwall to repair the dial-works, hands and clock of St Ia Church, the St Ives parish Church.
Here in this interview with shots of the clockmakers at work, Churchwarden of St Ia, Stephen Vranch explains the significance of the clock for both the church and the town as a whole, the work done by fellow parishioner Carmel Henry in ensuring the clock is cared for, and details of the fundraising process.
Stephen highlights the civic role of the clock in the town, including its importance for marking key moments in the calendar year. Watch the video to hear more about the project and scroll down to see the article printed on the front page of the St Ives Times & Echo, which reads: “Thank you again to all who made this possible through their generous donations. St Ives Clock is ticking again.”
