A Sad Loss...

Monday 21st February

It is with great sadness that we announce the sad loss of Kay Gibbs who passed away last Friday after a short illness.  Many will have known Kay from her involvement with the Pincents Organ Club where she was the leading light for so many years.

Kay's dedication, together with Alan for so many years made a great contribution to the Organ World and we are sure many artistes and friends she made would want to know of her passing.
