Valuation of the organ – The Parish Council recently sought a valuation of our Wordsworth and Maskell Organ (imported from Leeds in 1883) following the completion of the re-diapering last year. James Peet, a retired quantity surveyor and organist with a vast experience in Diocesan insurance valuation work and also with Sydney City Council, was invited to provide the valuation. Thank you to Kathy Drummond for organising this and James Peet has valued the organ at $429,000 for asset and replacement value. Of course, to us it’s priceless!
On the First Sunday of the Month we hold a low-key prayer service in the chapel. Peter Seymour leads the worship and gives a very informative (but short) talk and then those present usually head off to a local café for some dinner. If you would like to be part of this, markdown 5.00 p.m. in your diary – first Sunday of the Month.
Our Play Group for carers of young children is continuing in the hall Mondays 10 a.m. to 12 noon. Please let others know about this group.
Homemade curds, relishes, pickles and jam — If you would like to order some, please email your order to Lea MacNeil (email@example.com) and it will be delivered to Opshop.
