I'm astonished that a Grade 1 listed building could be ruined in this way. The existing clock is not old fashioned, it works and its traditional face fits in with the historic buildings of the town. Whats next CocaColaville!

I'm rather thinking that the Arts Centre could lend its forefront to neon-lighted TDK and Sanyo advertisements. That would buy them a few chairs...

i do hope that the powers that be have thought that the digits will be bright at night and thay shall dim either with the aid of a sensor automaticly or as now
a climb to the top to wind up, turn a dial to adjust the brightness, we would not like to dazzle a passing motorist would we.

Lets hope they use the correct measurements for the temperature and that the bell is not replaced by an announcement " Twist The Cap To Refreshment"

It is quite amazing that English Heritage have allowed the clock to be changed in this manner.

Have the Town Council looked at Corpwatch, the online organisation that checks out the ethics of major corporations. They might do this before accepting sponsorship from Coca Cola. And what about the battle against obesity....I am disgusted. Is it too late for a major petition to be organised? How dare they>

Some of us just have to see the word Coca Cola to see red...have a look at this documentary those who think this is funny.....
And yes I do lose my sense of humour....good wishes to all.
