Farewell to friends

March 31, 2015

Easter Sunday will see a fond farewell to two old friends, when Trevor retires as Holy Trinity's organist, and the pipe organ is heard for the last time.

 

We are extremely thankful to Trevor for his 23 years of service and sorry to see the old organ go, but it is too expensive to repair.

 

On Easter Monday work begins on dismantling the old organ and preparing the space for our new innovative digital organ, which will be the best of its type in Scotland.  During this process, the choir vestry will be expanded and refurbished, and new storage built into it.

 

Volunteers are now needed to help with this work, so if you are free on the 9th, 10th, or 13-17th April, please let us know.  We need keen able-bodied people to help remove the pipes to go into storage, help dispose of the now redundant organ mechanisms, and take any scrap wood used for the organ frame to the tip. A trailer, or a car with a large boot, would also be a bonus!
