Hi all,
Your town clock is the centre of your town and a beautiful and truly unique structure. I have read thru various Welsh News Sites that it stopped working in January due to rain and has yet to be repaired. News of Wales unfortunately is extremely rare if not non existant in Australia and I was wondering if any towns folk can give me any info as to the delays in repairs... Or is it the Local Council that I read so much about in these terrifically informing forums? Thanks for your time.

Taken tonight.

Forgive the low-resolution of the pic (I took it from the front steps ), but have TTC taken the Street Light thing too far?

Wouldn't really surprise me if you were correct Sam =]
Samstan Posted - 27/08/2009 : 07:02:32
Has anybody actually seen it being repaired? If not its probably the vibrations from the off lorry going past thats sticking/ unsticking something in the mechanism ;) (I hope that doesn't give TTC the idea of just sending someone to drive past it until it works :D)

Now back working..............

Is it a fair comment to say that the people responsible for fixing the clock do not know what they are doing ?
GOM Posted - 25/08/2009 : 16:38:54
Yep not working

Seems its just like the TTC.

The G.O.M. what ever happend to the days when there was pride?

Their PR on the cost varies between £70,000 and £130,000.

The current state of the clock howevery, is static.......
aussiewelshman Posted - 15/08/2009 : 22:18:26

Bet if it was one of the councilors clocks in there house it would soon have a new battery.

The TTC should be run out of town they are of no use to man nor beast, and yet we have to pay for it.

The G.O.M. sickend by these useless people.

You little monkey
sean Posted - 11/08/2009 : 20:15:52
can someone remind me who is responsible for making sure the clock is working?

whoever it is doesn't seem to be able to do it properly. is there an appraisal system in place to find out why they can't manage this task and what appropriate action should be taken?


pierre Posted - 11/08/2009 : 19:57:55
Bugger :o(
