Dear Deal and District – Please Help!
After just managing to staff the latest Easter opening, we Keepers of Deal’s famous and unique TimeBall Tower are facing the forthcoming season with dismay. We’ve never been overwhelmed with Volunteers, but recent losses of long-standing stalwarts have made our future openings look decidedly uncertain.
The Tower is due to open 1130-1630 on Saturdays and Sundays in May plus Bank Holidays, then the full season of Wednesdays to Sundays inclusive is scheduled to begin in June. Without extra Volunteers to supplement our dwindling band of Regulars, this schedule may not be achievable.
