Weyhill Electronic Organ Society were fortunate in acquiring use of the Andover town library window - in the main shopping centre - for the week commencing 25 January and were able to advertise their concerts, display photographs and provide information about the Club. 

Inside the foyer, they had a table upon which copies of their brochure and leaflets, containing full details of their 2010 concert programme, were available to the public. 

Here at OrganFax, we thought it was a wonderful idea and hopefully, a few other other clubs may be able to secure a similar pro... Read more.

No More Organ Music For The North Pier!No More Organ Music For The North Pier!

Saturday 30th January

Last year David Windle announced his new summer season residency on the North Pier in Blackpool.  Here he presented a series of organ concerts on the Yamaha FX20 three times a week giving 12 hours of organ music to its visitors.

Unfortunately, due to budget cuts the concerts will not be reinstated for the 2010 season. 

We wish David well and hope that the management at the Pier may reconsider their decision.

Sad Loss Of A Wonderful Friend...

Sunday 17th January

Byron (Jones) & Terry received the news today Sunday 17th January, that their wonderful friend and secretary of the Wizard Festivals, Pam Shields slipped peacefully away in the early hours. 

Not long ago Pam had an operation to remove a tumor, and it seems that cancer had spread to other parts.  Despite treatments Pam continued to try to be positive, but over the last week went downhill.  The last few day were spent in hospital where she peacfully slept until the end. 

For those who knew her and wish to send condolences, they can be sent to Byron who will pass them on to her daughter Julie.
