Why is it always eleven minutes past six in Plumtree?
If you’ve been in the vicinity of Plumtree Church recently, you may be confused by the fact that the pointers on the clock permanently indicate eleven minutes past six. However, if you can’t see the clock face but can hear the hours being chimed, you probably don’t think anything is amiss. This is because the chimes function independently of the clock mechanism.
The problem is caused by the clock’s electric motor which has sadly croaked its last. A replacement motor has been ordered and it’s hoped to have it fitted as soon as is possible.
The churchwardens apologise for any confusion that this may be causing (but on the plus side, it's always "Gin o'clock"!)
