The Gravesend Clock Tower is being restored following a successful bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Funding of £172,300 covers 80 per cent of the total project cost and the remaining will come from Gravesham Borough Council funds set aside specifically for the clock tower’s maintenance costs and a small Kent County Council members’ grant.
The project includes both physical restoration work and a programme of community engagement. The work starts in June and is expected to last 26 weeks.
A number of community events will take place and will include a diverse range of activities intended to reach a wide audience of possible participants. Engagement activities will include working with volunteers in delivery of the various events/activities and will provide learning opportunities for those willing to get involved.
