GOLDEN celebrations have been taking place for the anniversary of a clock house.

Fifty years ago last week the Potton clock house first opened on the site of the dilapidated Shambles.

Since that day the clock house has been home to Potton's library and some wonderful memories of the town and an exhibition has been held to mark the anniversary.

Chairman of Potton's History Society, George Howe, said: "The exhibition went very well. There was a good attendance and we were given fantastic feedback. People were extremely interested to look at the photographs we have of the clock house from the past 50 years."

The exhibition was a great opportunity for everyone to find out a bit of history about their town by looking at the pictures and models that were dispersed around the exhibition and by listening to stories told by the history society.
