From Mrs Susan Hinds Sir: Bob Musker (letter, 6 January) should know that there are alternatives to strong young men - at least for the purpose of clock winding. A 57-year-old woman (me) winds our church and town clock twice a week and my predecessor continued to go up the tower occasionally until a few months before his death at the age of 89.

Up the wrinklies and crumblies, I say. But a strong young man on a job-share arrangement would be very welcome and I'm open to offers.

Yours faithfully, SUSAN HINDS Windsor, Berkshire 6 January
