A charity has donated funds to a village school to repair an old clock.

The clock, on the front of Holme-on-Spalding Moor Primary, has been broken for about eight years. Holme-on-Spalding Moor Relief in Need and Education Charity has donated £1,500 towards repairing the clock and for a new plaque, fitted on the front of the school, which recognises that the charity has helped finance the restoration. Headteacher Mark Alston, said: “The school is really grateful for the charity’s generosity. The clock is not just a focal point for the school but the whole community.” The original clock may be as old as the original school building, built in 1875. The school has paid for a new light to be installed above the clock.
