Labour in control and already the Town Clock is on the blink

Redcar Town Clock is currently showing the incorrect time. The clock maintenance engineers have advised that the timing mechanism should right itself in a few days.

Let's hope it does. One of the first things we did when we took control of the Council was get the town clock ticking again. It had been out of action for more than four years and the Labour administration claimed it was seriously damaged by vandalism. The truth turned out quite differently. The only thing wrong with the clock was that the mechanism had siezed up through lack of maintenance.

The Lib Dem led Coalition kept the clock ticking for four years. Let us hope that Labour do not neglect it again now they are back in control.
