Sink The Clock sign now

Millennium Square in Coventry was funded and built with the intention of providing a functional public space, i.e. for gatherings and public performance. To make this possible, the Millennium Clock was supposed to be 'sunk' flush with the surface. This did not happen and now the clock is raised above the surface making use of the square, particularly for the disabled, impractical. For public events the clock must be covered, for public safety reasons, incurring an immediate cost of around 10,000. Coventry City Council now says it has 150,000 to spend on the square and has suggested 3 options, namely: a statue, information boards or floral arrangements. They have also aked for ideas and we believe that sinking the clock flush with the surface as originally intended would offer more value for money to the city and its people than the other three options, as it would offer a realistic opportunity for live performance of music for all ages and tastes, dance, fairs and other public gatherings. This would be an invaluable cultural investment in our city and a fitting purpose for a public monument symbolising all the promise of a new millenium. We believe 'Sinking The Clock' to be the best use of our public money.

    The square isn't used for ANYTHING really at the moment-this is the best use of the money by far, in my opinion, as it will actually make a difference, rather than just a cosmetic change like a statue.
