RESTORATIVE work will be undertaken to Maryborough's City Hall clock over the coming months.

From April 11, the historic clock will not be operational for up to three months while it is being fully and carefully restored.

The full restoration will involve dismantling, cleaning and servicing of parts and the replacement of bearings, electric motors and chains.

This will be the first major restoration project undertaken to the 81-year old clock, which was originally manufactured in 1935 by John Taylor & Co, Loughborough, Scotland.

The nature of the repairs will ensure the clock retains its historical integrity.
