Small field and lime pits in the Tannery development

The small field in the Tannery development has now been leased to the Parish Council which intends to make it an open space for the community of Grampound with Creed.

Today members of the Tannery Residents Association (William Netting, Keith Jones), the landowner (Jonathon Croggon), and members of the Heritage Committee of the Parish Council (Tina and Terry Tyler, Peter Wootton, Liz Fisher) met at the field to consider fencing and maintenance.

Grampound's clock

As you may have noticed the clock stopped for a few days in November. Time has stood still at five past seven in Grampound!

There was a problem with the chiming mechanism and the clocksmith was called to attend to it. The hammer is stuck and will need fixing.

It is now running again but does not chime.

Thanks to Stephanie Cairns who winds the clock each week to keep it in top condition.
