Friends of Alton Station
John Walker Clock
Our eagle-eyed committee member Peter Desmond-Thomas spotted that the John Walker clock hanging in the Alton station ticket office was not working. After making enquiries, South West Trains agreed to pay for it to be restored back to working order. The clock went to the Alton Clock Shop for servicing and was brought back to working order. A small ceremony was held on Friday 23rd October 2015, attended by the mayor Pam Jones, and it was mounted back on the wall for all to see.
Whilst this is a small project, it demonstrates how well we can work in partnership to get small improvements made.
