A clock commemorates Robert Moore who was Shire President from 1920 to 1936.  He was also instrumental in conserving the Fidden Creek Rainforest Remnant.

A clock in a central position in Main street, Kyogle, erected by the citizens as a memorial to the late Cr. R. J. Moore, who had been president of the Kyogle Shire Council for 16 years when he died in 1936, was unveiled by Mr. J. T. Reid, M.L.A., on Saturday.  Cr.
