Out of thousands of images it could have selected, Penarth Town Council has chosen one of Penarth’s infamously unreliable town clock to illustrate its latest public consultation.
Time has already been called on the faux-Victorian clock on the roundabout at Windsor Road . It is due be scrapped some time this year and replaced with a similar-looking new one ordered from the makers, Smiths of Derby.
The faulty face – which continually displayed the wrong time , or at least not the same time as the other four faces – was blanked off a year ago when it proved impossible to source spare parts for repairs .
The “wrong” face was covered-up with a grammatically-incorrect bi-lingual message “Welcome to Penarth” [the Welsh soft mutation is missing].
The public consultation/ survey officially called “Your Future Your Say“ was originally reported by PDN on June 7th 2018 on https://tinyurl.com/y7e6htph.
The on-line consultation itself is on the Penarth Town Council website on https://www.penarthtowncouncil.gov.uk/
When the consultation was first placed on-line, the internet links to website did not work but at least now it does. The consultation will run until October.
