Nominations now open to light up the town’s Jubilee Clock!
Weymouth Town Council is asking people to nominate local charities they would like to see recognised by the Jubilee Clock light up scheme.
In 2023 the council will be lighting up Weymouth’s iconic Jubilee Clock to raise awareness for good causes with the colours that best represent the chosen charities. One charity can be represented per month, with the clock being lit for up to three days during the month.
In 2022, the clockface was illuminated on several occasions in support of charities and awareness days nominated by the public. Full list here.
Residents can nominate any local charity or organisation that benefits Weymouth residents by completing a short form by midday on Monday 23rd January. Nominations will then be taken to a panel of councillors for consideration including Mayor of Weymouth, Cllr Ann Weaving, Deputy Mayor Tia Roos, Cllr Helen Toft and Cllr Tim Young.
Mayor, Cllr Ann Weaving, said: “Please get your nominations in by January 23rd and tell us which local charity or organisation you would like us to raise awareness of by lighting up the Jubilee Clock. It’s one of Weymouth’s most recognisable landmarks and I am looking forward to sitting on the panel to see the range of suggestions which come forward.”
Fill out our survey here to nominate a charity today up until the closing date of midday on Monday 23rd January.
