The bongs are back!
After a week of deafening silence from Paisley Town Hall clock, the timepiece is now striking the hour once more.
There was consternation among Buddies when the clock, which has been beloved of generations, was struck dumb – and not for the first time.
However, workmen for Renfrewshire leisure, which runs the town hall on behalf of Renfrewshire Council, managed to get to the bottom of the latest issue with the landmark clock, which has been dogged by problems in recent years.
Renfrewshire Leisure’s chief executive, Joyce McKellar said: “There was a small connection fault, which one of Renfrewshire Leisure’s engineering staff repaired.”
