In photos: Commemorative clock for 'father of the village hall' unveiled

A commemorative clock was unveiled in memory of a popular East Huntspill villager during a ceremony in front of hundreds of residents on Saturday evening (July 21st).

The new digital clock was launched above the entrance to the village hall in memory of Ray Puddy, who died in January, and was known as the 'father of the village hall.'

Dave Barlow, village hall committee member, told "If it hadn't been for Ray, this wonderful hall wouldn't be here today. He was the driving force behind getting it built which is why we wanted to do something special to remember him."

Ray's widow, Mary, was among 500 residents, family and friends at the ceremony, which was held during an outdoor event. Mary, who is now Chairman of the Village Hall Committee, said she was "deeply touched" by the support.
