FRIENDS KEEP CLOCK TICKINGIssued Thursday 14th June 2007
A recent inspection of the Medieval Clock revealed that remedial work and a general overhaul were necessary, and to avoid damage the clock was stopped. The necessary work has now been carried out by The Cumbria Clock Company of Penrith and the clock is working again. The Friends have paid the cost of repairs of approximately £2,500. Those with long memories will know that it was the Friends who paid for the restoration of the clock some 50 years ago, so it is fitting that Friends are continuing to keep it ticking over.
The Friendsí Annual General Meeting and Friendsí Day takes place on Saturday 22 September 2007 in the Cathedral. Full details will be sent to members, with booking forms for the various events, during July.
