A plaque is to be unveiled in Wisbech on Friday under the historic Dann’s Clock, which was restored and returned to its original position.
The Wisbech Society and Wisbech Rotary Club have funded the plaque, which will be fitted on the outside of WH Brown in Bridge Street, to “ensure Dann’s Clock will continue to earn the recognition it deserves”.
The unveiling ceremony takes place at 6.30pm on June 9.
In 2015 Dann’s Clock was returned to its original position on what was previously Smith’s tobacconists and once the premises of watch and clock maker James Dann, who originally installed it in 1864.
The Wisbech Society and The Rotary Club of Wisbech paid for the purchase and restoration, while Wisbech Town Council met the legal costs.
