WESTON’S famous timepiece, the floral clock, has welcomed a new friend thanks to members of Weston Lions Club.

Fundraisers put aside £1,000 to improve the floral focal point in Alexandra Parade, and have now added a colourful creature to the cuckoo house.

Gregory the cuckoo now sits proudly in place, as the Lions discuss autumn and winter designs for the flowerbed below. The search is still ongoing for the floral clock hands to complete the revamp.

When the Mercury reported on plans for the garden’s facelift, Lions member Chris Nelson said the clock mechanisms are underground and the club thinks the hands were last used in the late 1990s, before they were taken away to be repaired.
