Councillor Tony Litton said: “The project was given the go-ahead because they’re conscious of Clare’s long history.

“It was recognised the lockdown and its aftermath are of historical significance to the town and something was wanted both to record it for today and importantly, be an archive in 50 or 100 years time.”
