The Organ 1940

Stuart Billington

Mr Leslie S Plummer made a brief report on the condition of the organ, saying he could not advise that the cleaning and overhaul should be further delayed.
If it was not done now it would very soon become a question of replacement of certain fittings, which would be a much more expensive matter.
Major-General Watson suggested that the work ought to be undertaken without further delay and mentioned the possibility of raising a loan for the work and paying it off by allotting a proportion of the church collections towards the cost.
Mr J C Lucas said he did not think a loan for the work would appeal to many members of the congregation. He suggested that the Church Council should meet more frequently to deal with such matters.
If necessary a small committee might then be appointed to take this matter in hand and carry it through.
It was decided to refer the question of the cleaning of the organ to the Church Council with a view to having the work carried out.
