The centenary clock on Broad Street in Seaford has been given a new lease of life thanks to Seaford Town Council.

The clock has been moved to the front of Cameron’s Pharmacy and repaired.

It was out of action for a number of years due to mechanical failure.

Seaford mayor Mark Brown said: “I am delighted that the clock is once again working and is now in a location where it can be more readily maintained. This is one more off the jobs to do list.”

The clock was donated to the town in 2006 by Seaford Rotary.

The council arranged for the relocation and restoration work by clock repairers Smiths of Derby to ensure the clock.

The clock has replacement parts and new lamps. It is now providing the time and is an attractive feature.

A new made to measure cover has been ordered for the clock too. Its original location was outside Hurdis House in Broad Street.

The new location enables easier servicing and reduces costs where previously specialist equipment was needed.
