The installation of a new clock in Bingham marked the culmination of a competition run by Toot Hill School on behalf of the town council.
The finished clock, designed by 12-year-old Mollie Grice, was unveiled at a special school assembly. Town Crier Peter Taunton announced the unveiling to pupils at the school before heading to Bingham Market Place to tell residents the clock would be installed.
Mollie was one of five finalists short listed for the chance of having their design turned into a £10,000 community clock, funded by Nottinghamshire County Council’s Local Improvement Scheme.
Mollie said she was delighted with the finished clock and was very proud it would now be centre stage in her local town. “I think it looks brilliant and I’m really excited to let people know it was my design,” Mollie added.
The numbers have been laid on using 24-carat golf leaf, a very durable, hard-wearing material. The numbers six and 12 have been replaced with the town council’s Buttercross logo and the numbers three and nine have been replaced with the school’s emblem.
Councilor Martin Suthers said: “What a marvellous asset for Bingham and I must congratulate Mollie on creating a small piece of history for the town which will now be seen by countless numbers of people in years to come.”
As a momento and thanks for all the hard work put into this project, Good Directions also manufactured two bezel clocks with all five of the finalists designs on the clock face, giving one to the school and one to the Town Council.
