Shropshire Council welcomes gift of clock from Newgate of Oswestry
Shropshire Council has welcomed the gift of a clock from Oswestry-based clock manufacturers Newgate.
The wall clock has been specially designed to bear the council logo and was recently presented to Councillor Ann Hartley, Chairman of Shropshire Council.
It is approximately 45cm (18ins) in diameter, and has a dark blue face and a gold surround, hands, numbers and lettering.
Councillor Hartley said:
“I was delighted when Newgate generously offered to produce a clock and donate it to Shropshire Council, and I thank them on behalf of the council.
“This fabulous new clock now takes pride of place in the Chairman’s office, where I hope it will be seen by visitors and dignitaries for many years to come.
“As well as being a lovely clock to look at, I hope it will help to demonstrate to visitors the breadth and quality of manufacturing companies that we have here in Shropshire, of which Newgate is just one excellent example.”
