Town should buy back our clock

OH dear this cannot be true. The Bridge Street clock, affectionately known to thousands of Wisbech people over the years as ‘Smiths under the clock’, has been removed.

How sad that it should have been allowed to happen.

The clock has been a Wisbech landmark for almost 150 years and removed in the blink of an eye.

One can only hope it is returned as soon as possible to where it came from.

Would it be possible for a town councillor to start a ‘Return the clock’ fund or for the Wisbech Society to negotiate its return?

Any money left, should it be possible to buy it back, could be put into a fund to maintain it for future years.
