Letters | Still the city hall clock is not working

Andrew Relborge

Following newspaper articles on the deputy mayor climbing up to the city hall clockworks, and the clock repairs getting underway, there seems to have been no further progress, so again the “City of Filth/Choice” remains without a functioning clock.

A few years ago, the April Fool’s Day joke published in The Witness was that a digital clock face would replace our standard city hall clock face. Now it seems that it may not have been a bad idea as the city leaders, after so many years of the clock being broken, still can’t get the repairs done, even though we have a renowned horologist living in our city.

Also, the leaking roofs need fixing and the copper sheeting needs replacing in the city hall.
