Dear Organ lover

Here is news of the next PDOA event: on Saturday 24th June an organ crawl to Market Deeping and Bourne. It is a welcome opportunity to meet other members and play some local instruments. Market Deeping is due for a rebuild, so there's a chance to hear it before and after. Please do also scroll down for some organ recitals in Stamford which I am promoting.

Best wishes
