Wilby Church Clock Appeal

Wilby Church clock was made by Leeson & Son of Colehill in 1880. It is has a cast iron flatbed movement with hour strike. The beautiful brass, toothed wheels are sadly now very worn, which is not surprising after 140 years of use. This wear has caused the clock to stop.

The specialist clock repair company need to remove the whole mechanism and take it back to their workshop in order to make and fit new parts to get it going again. The cost of this work is £7,764. This is a lot of money for a small church congregation to raise. The church members are appealing to you to help them raise the money to repair the clock and restore this village amenity.

How to donate

If you would like to help, you can donate money to the appeal in a number of ways:

  1. In cash or by cheque (made out to ‘Wilby Church Fund’) delivered to Wilby Church Treasurer,              Mr J Murphy, 4 Church Lane, Wilby, NN8 2UG.
  2. By bank transfer to HSBC, Wilby Church Fund, sort code 40-46-03, account no 10868078.

If you are a tax-payer, you can boost your donation by printing off and filling out the gift aid declaration in the attachment below and returning it to 4 Church Lane. This increases the donation by 20% at no extra cost to you.

THANK YOU
