£8,595raised of £8,000 target by 410 supporters

    Weʼve raised £8,595 to Reinstate the R A Jones clock in Southend High Street

    Southend-on-Sea, United Kingdom
    Funded on Tuesday, 23rd May 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    The clock fell into disrepair and became unsafe, therefore it had to be removed. We, as a group, are working alongside Southend Museums Service in order to raise enough funds for its full restoration and re-instatement in the original position above the former R A Jones , jewellers shop in Southend High Street. The clock was a well-loved and memorable sight, and also provided a valuable service, advising the precise time at all hours, it was often a meeting point, people agreeing to meet "under the Jones clock". R A Jones, himself was the greatest benefactor the town has ever known and it is fitting and timely that the people of Southend should give back this to him at this time as 2017 marks the centenary of his biggest gift to the town, Priory Park.

      So so thrilled and excited that we have reached our target and now, in October, the clock will be reinstated in its rightful position! The upkeep of the clock will be under the auspices of Southend Museums service so we are leaving this page open for a little while as any future donations will be handed to FOSMs (Friends of Southend Museums) to be used for the upkeep and maintenance of "our" clock. Thank you all once again from the bottom of my heart!
