Save The Tick-Tock

At the age of five and on a visit to my Grandmother's neighbour in Shepshed, I discovered an old clock in a cupboard under the stairs. It was broken and nobody wanted it, so it was just stored. I wanted to save it, but I was not allowed to have it.

These things sometimes stick in your mind. Years later I rescued some old nondescript clocks and had them repaired. Obviously trying to make up for some earlier sense of loss! I don't know how to repair clocks myself; and these days the costs of repair are often greater than the value of a clock. More clocks are destined to end their days broken in some dark and dusty cupboard.
