Police Report

There was no Police report at the monthly Parish Council meeting (so, we presume, there was no crime to report upon). There was no Police presence at the Annual Parish meeting (though traffic volumes and speeds was a major discussion point).

Organ Repair

We had hoped that the work to repair the organ would begin at the end of April but our organ builders, Nicholson’s, have been held up on other jobs. If you would like to see what they are doing please have a look at their website: We have been given a new start date of Monday 1st July - it will take them 2 weeks to dismantle and remove the pipes. These will be taken to their workshop in Malvern. There will be some disruption during this time but the church will carry on as usual and work around the project. Thank you to everyone who has contributed to this wonderful project - we have almost raised the money needed. There will be further updates as the work progresses. Clare Stockford, Churchwarden.
