Our clock was originally a feature of Cambridge Post Office (1908) – the building now home to Alpino Cucina & Vino. The P.O. clock tower was damaged during the Napier earthquake (1931) and subsequently dismantled. The current tower was built in Jubilee Gardens and the clock installed in 1934.

Clock Cambridge New Zealand

Clock Cambridge New Zealand

Cambridge clock lit in the Tricolour to celebrate Bastille Day 2016 and the friendship between Cambridge and Le Quesnoy; a bond forged in WW1. The immediacy of the Bastille Day tragedy in Nice, when this photograph was made on a cold winter evening, adding a sad and reflective significance to the gesture.

  • Cambridge New Zealand has a sister city (twinning or friendship) relationship with Le Quesnoy, France & Bihoro-cho, Hokkaido, Japan.
