Blairmore Hall Save our Clock Fund Raising Campaign

 

 This week Blairmore Hall Trust are launching   a Save our Clock Campaign to raise £2,500 to repair the clock on the outside of this iconic building and install an electrical winding mechanism. 

Blairmore Hall was built in the 1870s and was formerly the passenger waiting room for Blairmore Pier.  Ownership of The building was transferred to the Blairmore Community in the 1970’s and since then the clock has required regular winding which   involves climbing up a steep ladder inside the hall and manually winding the mechanism. A very precarious task.

 

Over the last few years this task has been carried out by Joe Lynn a Blairmore resident and Bruce Marshall Chairperson of the Hall Trust. For the last few months the Clock has stopped working as the weights have jammed and it is felt that a ‘dead clock’ in the village does not reflect the vibrancy of life in the Blairmore Community.  The Hall Trust are therefore taking steps to get the clock working again and save it for the future through fixing the fault and installing an electrical winding mechanism which will mean manual winding is no longer required.   

We are asking people throughout the Cowal area and further afield to help raise the money required through donations at collecting points along the Shore and online at   

www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/BlairmoreHallClock

Anyone wishing  to donate in other ways should contact Isobel Brown, Hall Secretary  at Isobel@izibrown.me.uk or blairmorehall@hotmail.co.uk or  speak to any of the Hall Trust Committee Members
