Weymouth’s Jubilee Clock to light up for charity – nominations now open!
Weymouth Town Council is asking the people of Weymouth which local charities they would like to see recognised by the Jubilee Clock light up scheme.
The council will once again be lighting up Weymouth’s iconic Jubilee Clock throughout the year to raise awareness for good causes. The initiative will light up the clockface with colours that represent different charities – one charity will be represented per month, with the clock being lit for up to three days during the month.
In 2021, the clockface was illuminated on a number of occasions in support of charities which were nominated by the public including: Weymouth Repair Café; the RNLI; Weymouth Sea Cadets; and Marie Curie.
Cllr Colin Huckle, Mayor of Weymouth, said: “We’re delighted to once again be raising awareness for charities and good causes using this well-known landmark. The Jubilee Clock is one of Weymouth’s most recognisable sights and a proud symbol of Weymouth’s heritage. Weymouth Town Council look forward to receiving a diverse range of nominations from the public.”
Residents can nominate any local charities they would like to see represented in 2022 by completing the SurveyMonkey form by midday on Friday 28th January. Nominations will then be taken to a panel of councillors for consideration.
