Belford Parish Council has agreed to give £1,000 towards repairing the clock at St Mary’s Church.

It has stopped and the mechanism needs to be replaced.

A quote for this work has been received, but a new electrical spur is also required so the total cost could be around £3,500-plus.

Chairman, Coun Brenda Stanton said: “It’s a focal point in Belford.”
