At noon, the device was turned around so that it could cast its shadow in the evening direction. The position of the shadow marks the hour in local time.

Head of Transformation, Havering Council Excellent and very valuable use of my time. The event was excellent, provided good contacts and was thought provoking. I went away with loads of good ideas, some of which I will definitely progress. It has been fascinating, really, to see the diversity of things that are happening across the country and the services at the current time. It is not a venue I had come across before but it is excellent in terms of the facilities that are available.
The way we have been looked after since I arrived here has been top rate. It has been brilliant. I can see that you and the team have got a well-oiled and effective formula for these which has been honed. I have taken a few ideas away. The event itself was very well run and the quality of attendees was excellent. I thought that the organisation was exceptional – it ran on rails.
