Mayor, Cllr Kate Wheller said: “I was delighted to have been involved in the decision making of which charities and groups will be lit up by the clock this year. We have some amazing charities and communities that will be recognised throughout 2024 by the Jubilee Clock. It’s an outstanding tourist attraction in Weymouth which many people like to photograph, so by lighting it in different colours we hope it will raise awareness about the work of these organisations. Weymouth Town Council will also light the clock red, white and blue on June 6 to commemorate the 80th anniversary since the D-Day landings.” 

Girlguiding are the first charity to be featured, Jane Macleod said: “Through fun, friendships, challenge and adventure, Girlguiding inspires girls to discover and become their best. The lighting of the Weymouth Jubilee Clock in blue is a celebration of all the girls, young women and adults who are members and volunteers with the national charity. Girlguiding is going strong, and all units/groups enable girls to have new opportunities and experiences.”
