A replacement blower unit is in the process of being installed by Watkins & Watson who should have finished by tomorrow lunchtime.

Mr Hugh Roberts also came to view the organ and take a few pictures for the Barmouth Photo Archive.

The meeting to organise things and show the organ was attended by a few dedicated volunteers and children and a family from Canada who are on holiday also joined in with the tour.

We might also consider running these tours on a more regular basis since everyone was surprised at how large the organ is beyond is front and some even had a go at pumping it.

Many fund-raising ideas were also mentioned so watch this space!

We will be adding more pictures to the pages (we can’t upload them at the moment) and there are a few videos on Facebook of parts of the tour.
