We are so pleased that, thanks to exceptional generosity from many people, we have raised sufficient funds to enable us to pay for the Jubilee Clock Tower Time Ball to be restored. We would like to thank everyone so much for contributing towards this iconic feature of our town.
A civic dedication ceremony was held at the Clock Tower on Saturday 24th May, led by the Mayor of Margate, Cllr John Edwards, by our President Ralph Handscomb, by Admiral The Lord Boyce KG GCB OBE and by Jonathan Betts MBE FSA FBHI, Master of the Worshipful Company of Clockmakers.
The climax of the day was the first drop of the Time Ball for over 90 years, at 1pm precisely. The Time Ball will now drop at that time every day.
