Bangalow clock to be restored
SEVENTY five years after it was dedicated to the Bangalow community by a local First World War veteran, its Memorial Clock is being restored to its original condition.
The white-faced clock has the words 'Lest We Forget' replacing the usual 1-12 numbering.
The clock was made by jeweller George Crisfrod on April 1, 1937, in memory of those killed during the wars up to and including the First World War.
75 years later, another jeweller, David Collins of Bangalow, is working pro bono to bring the clock to its original condition.
There are only four Memorial Clocks in Australia similar to the one in Bangalow: One at the Post Office in Hobart, a clock tower version in Goomeri, QLD, and another one in Pinnaroo, SA.
