Church Organ restoration appeal
The current Church organ at St Mary's Parish Church Shroton was built by JC Bishop
and probably dates from the early 19th century. This instrument has the potential to become once again a valuable and appropriate part of the beautifully re-ordered interior of this important church. It needs a full restoration to the highest standard.
The Parish Church Council are exploring how this can be achieved with several organ builders, and will hope to be able to secure some grants towards the cost from national grant making trusts which specialise in organ restoration. The P.C.C. are in the process of approaching two of the Diocesan listed organ builders to obtain a quotation for the recommended work. The P.C.C. has already raised over £4,000 towards the cost and are extremely grateful for this support however Much more will be needed. If you feel that you would like to contribute to the renovation of this wonderful and historically important instrument please contact the Church Office. Email and tel details are provided below. Your support would be greatly appreciated. For any fundraising events already organised please click on the 'Dates for your Diary' link above.
Kindest regards; Rev'd David W John
