Time is money for the Duxford Parish Clock restoration appeal where each £1 donation equals one minute.

The hands are counting down to the £8,000 target – which is“midnight on October 29 when British Summer Time ends.

As the appeal has so far raised £3,370, the hands currently are positioned at 5.05pm.

To boost funds for the work on St Peter’s Church tower a specially commissioned exclusive batch of “What’s the Time?” biscuits are being sold this Saturday, August 12, on a charity cake stall outside Boots the Chemist in Saffron Walden.

Joanne Depradines-Smith, clerk to Duxford Parish Council, said: “We have six hours 55 minutes to go before we reach our target of £8,000 - which we are aiming to do before the clock strikes 12.”

Other events include:

• Sunday, August 20 and Sunday, September 24: Bingo and quiz night, eyes down at 7pm, at The Plough, Duxford

• Friday & Saturday October 13-14: Duxford’s Art, Crafts and History weekend

• Saturday, October 28: Witching Hour feast at the John Barleycorn, 7.30pm until late.
