Saturday 14th August

It is with sadness that we report the passing of Albert Ratcliffe.

Known to many for his involvement with the Rutland Organ Club which he ran for many years, this week saw Albert's 89th birthday. 

Our thoughts and condolences go out to his wife Carol who has cared for him for many years - he will be missed by many.

Cled GriffinCled Griffin

Sunday 8th August

It is great sadness that we announce the passing of Cled Griffin just 3 weeks short of his 90th Birthday.

Father to Ian Griffin, many of you knew Cled through his influetial roles within the organ world. Cled was the originator of the Home Organ Festivals which started in 1980 at Pontins Barton Hall, Torquay. He certainly revolutionalised and set the way forward for many to come with residential organ events.

Our sincerest thoughts go to Ian and Donna and their families at this very sad time.
