The clock, like most of the street furniture in Burscough Bridge has up to now been owned by West Lancs Borough Council and not by the Parish Council - hence, the repair therefore fell to the Borough Council to fund.
Some time ago the Parish Council agreed to take ownership of the clock if the Borough Council would pay to bring it back into good repair. Finally, WLBC have found the £2000.00 needed for the replacement movement and the repair is now going ahead.
A future maintenance contract will be in the region of £250 to £300 per annum and there will still be work to do at some point in replacing the images on the column which have deteriorated with age. This will need to be paid for from the precept paid by local residents.
