Stamford Watchmaker Robert Loomes has been appointed vice chairman of The British Horological Institute, the representative body of the horological institute.

Robert Loomes is well-known internationally for his work on watchmaking and was recently made only the second emeritus Fellow of the Institute this century.

He said: “I am delighted to have been appointed to the role of Vice Chair. This is a very exciting time for The British Horological Institute.

“With help from the Heritage Lottery Fund we are looking to begin an £8.5m development scheme to convert a wonderfully old and dilapidated stable block at Upton Hall, into two further classrooms which will double the number of teaching hours we can provide to clock and watchmaking apprentices.”
