All is well with world

I was amazed to read in the Gazette that the historic clock on the Queen Victoria Jubilee tower on Pier Parade has been finally fully restored with the installation of a new auto winding system and auto regulator (I think it was last seen in working order when the trolley buses used to terminate at the Pier Head).

Anyway, I had to see it for myself so as part of my New Year’s morning constitutional I had a walk down there with the Border collie in tow.

Low and behold the said clock gave the right time, which was spot on 10 0’ clock and also on hearing the Town Hall clock chiming 10 in the distance for a short while all seemed well with the world.

Happy new year.
