Highbridge's new £20,000 town clock arrives in time for Jubilee

Highbridge's brand new town clock was installed in the town centre on Tuesday (May 22nd).

The £20,000 four-faced clock was installed in Jubilee Gardens in the place of the old three-faced structure, which was demolished last month.

The new clock has been part funded by £16,700 of donations and pledges from around 30 residents and businesses, including one single donation of £5,000.

The Town Council will be putting the names of all those who donated cash into a hat and drawing a name who will be invited to officially open the landmark om Saturday June 2nd at 3pm as part of Burnham and Highbridge's Jubilee celebrations.

Those who have given donations will also be acknowledged on a plaque to be sited at Highbridge Community Hall in Market Street.
