Grant to St James Garlickhythe

01 February 2021

On Monday 1st February, a grant of £4000 was presented to Fr Tim Handley, Priest in charge of St James Garlickhythe by the Clockmakers' Charity.

The turret clock had been falling into a state of disrepair, with the figure of St James on top of the case damaged and the lead covering that protects the top of the case and mechanism inside in very poor repair, even peeling back in places.

The grant from the Clockmakers' Charity will help the Parish to restore their clock to its former glory, in perfect time for the Clockmakers' carol service.
