Hello, My school is looking for an organ for its assembly Hall and is just over the boarder in west yorkshire. something like this would be ideal.Do you still need a home for it?
An update on the Makin organ at Lancaster is now possible followinglast nights project group meeting. Thank you to everyone for their patiencewith us and I hope we can reach a solution which suits all concerned.The weekbeginning the 16th April is the best time for the Priory to remove the Makin.The removal is central to a chain of events with the Organ Builders and toalter their plans at this point is difficult and will have all sorts of knockon effects for the project. I hope thats understandable and appreciate that allinvolved are organising around these dates to find a suitable home for such alovely instrument.We could suggest that the Priory people take responsibilityfor removing the Makin and storing it until whoever can pick it up can make itto Lancaster to take it away. If whoever wants it could organise for somebodyto be here on the sixteenth to record and photograph the removal so that it canbe reassembled correctly that would be the simplest way through this process atthe moment.
All is well at this end. TheMakin is coming out smoothly so far and James Kenny and I are doing a trip toHalifax today and one tomorrow in a project volunteers high top van. Everythingseems to be turning out for the best !.Many thanks for all the help andsupport in recycling such a nice instrument. Its great when a touch ofrecycling comes together !!
thank you to all involved in the recycling of theMakin organ. It was a long shot to achieve this but was absolutely in keepingwith the spirit of an organ restoration project and I am delighted that wemanaged to pull it off between us all.
I had a welcome telephone call from Charles yesterday evening, telling me of the great efforts that had been made yesterday to take the Makin out and despatch it to its new home. I am very pleased that such a positive outcome has been achieved, and am most grateful to everyone who has made it possible.
