    The Church Organ.
    This was one of the reasons they hoped to raise money, to get an overhaul of the organ.
    They have already had work done on the church, inside and out.
    Some of the vintage pics on display were great.

    Finally 2 of the exterior.
    I must mention, they had an old cine film on display ( copied to DVD and looped )
    It was about the childrens outing from about the 30's I think to the beach and was really good.

    {edit}
    Did I mention its the largest brick built church in Europe

    When the church was getting renovated, they took some pics of the interior, with the scaffolding up.
    In amongst the scaffolding were ghostly shapes, captured on film.
    Spike and I were very impressed, were we not
