The good people of Helston (Cornwall) must consider themselves very fortunate that for over 200 years they have not suffered a serious, clock related disaster.
For you see my loyal readers Nanny has come along just in the nick of time to save these good people from a very nasty occurrence, lest the church clock of St Michael's injures someone.
Since 1793 a volunteer warden has wound the clock up. Nanny very wisely has decreed that this presents a health and safety risk, and as such has banned it.
The church will now have to spend £5,000 to buy a machine to do the job.
The warden, Mr Nott, was given the health and safety advice from the clock's maintenance manager who said that:
"Unfortunately many people who wind clocks up aren't getting any younger and their safety is important."
As ever with Nanny she ignores the reality. Mr Nott's predecessor did the job for 40 years without having an accident, and retired at 80.
Surely there are more important safety issues that Nanny can apply her "brain" to?
