Keynsham's new - almost finished - clocktower unveiled to the community
Published on: 19 Sep 2015
Crowds gathered on Saturday, September 19, to watch the unveiling of the long-awaited new clocktower for Keynsham.
Despite setbacks in the final phases of construction, which meant only one of the clock faces had been installed by the time the official ceremony got under way, the three-sided column with images inspired by the town's history and community of today was ready for people to take a close look at the artwork to which many of them had contributed.
Shirley Janes, 81, and four-and-a-half-year-old Oliver Sheppard, both Keynsham residents, cut the ribbon at the ceremony after speeches from artist Sebastien Boyesen and chair of Keynsham Town Council Lisa O'Brien.
