QUEEN Elizabeth II’s visit to the borough during her jubilee year is now marked by a permanent memorial in Hayes.

After months in the planning, fundraising and making, the diamond jubilee clock was unveiled in Station Approach by Her Majesty's Lord-Lieutenant Sir David Brewer on Sunday (February 24).

Speaking after the ceremony Gill Jaynes, from the Hayes Village Association’s clock committee, said: “The unveiling of this clock makes me proud to be a Hayes resident.”

The clock cost around £9,000, with the money coming from fundraisers and donations by Hayes residents, businesses, schools and associations.
