SIR, - Re your story headlined "Time may be up for town's clock" (Herts Advertiser, January 22). I don't understand the logic of former Harpenden Town Councillor Harvey Haynes when he states that if the town clock above M&Co cannot be repaired by M&Co then it should be moved to another site. Who is going to repair it if it is moved to another site - the Town Council? M&Co have kept the clock in good decorative order and its present position is the ideal location for it. It has become part of Harpenden's heritage and I for one would be sorry to see it removed. Anyway doesn't it now belong to M&Co and if they want it moved it is surely up to them?

I would be more than happy for some of my council tax to be spent by Harpenden Town Council to repair it.

Anyway it shows the right time two times a day.

TONY DAWSON-HILL,

Mons Close, Harpenden.
