Gallery organ console
The organ console in the gallery is returning this week is returning this week having been upgraded, and the console in the transept will be removed for upgrading to a digital operation. When that returns we plan some special organ events to welcome the digital age to our organ operation.
The wooden risers are to be removed from the gallery to allow for alternate seating, so stay tuned for a working bee to assist in pulling apart the risers.
Gardeners to the ready
On Saturday 6 May at 9am we are having a working bee in the vicarage front garden to weed and remodel it to facilitate the BGS ride-on mower which cannot access all the curves at the present time. There will be refreshments so come along for a short or longer time to assist Ken and Gail who are leading the charge.
