Current ConsumptionThe actual cost of running the ‘clock’ is a small item; the clock makers estimate
that the consumption will be 60 units per annum.
This is not all, there will be needed sixteen 60 watt lamps to illuminate the four dials at night.
The cost of lighting the clock for twelve months, including the darkest period of the year, will be approximately £20. This figure is only made possible by the very generous terms given to our Committee by the Area General Manager. N.C.B.
Mr.Fry. We appreciate this fine gesture.
On behalf of the War Memorial Committee we wish to thank the general public for
its generous and unstinted support during the last three years; the response to every appeal never failed . Our thanks go out to all who have helped in any small way to make the Memorial possible.
Costs up to date as per estimate:-
Up to the time of print we have the grand sum of £1822 in hand .which has been subscribed by the people of Trimdon in approximately ‘three years’. The balance it is felt will be found at the day of the ‘Unveiling’.
