SPRUCE-UP PLEDGE ON STATION CLOCK
THERE are hopes that repairs and repainting of the Cleethorpes railway station clock will be carried out by mid-summer.
At a NELC scrutiny panel meeting, the borough’s head of regeneration, David Brierley, said the authority was in weekly contact with Network Rail.
"We have received reassurances that the work will be completed by Armed Forces Weekend (June 24-26)," he said. "There are no guarantees, but they have said they will do it."
Close inspection of the clock reveals that, as well as not telling the time, some of the wooden frame surrounding the face is rotting.
Before the project can begin, Listed Building Consent will be required from local planners.
Coun Matty Brown said he was "delighted" by the news.
