The clock on the pavilion was bought by the Parish Council as part of the millennium celebrations and was supplied by Steve Fletcher (of The Repair Shop TV programme fame). It was installed by myself and my brother in law Graham Perkins (Graham was brought up in the village and lived in Pilgrims Cottage, Chapel Hill at that time).

 
The clock had an electric motor and was radio linked to a transmitter in Rugby to keep accurate time and negate the need for somebody to make seasonal time changes.
 
Unfortunately some members of the village youth decided it would be a good idea to break the clock hands some few months after it was installed and to my belief it has not worked from that day to this.
 
Perhaps I should look at getting it fixed!!
