It is with great sadness that we announce the untimely passing of Ken Marshall.
Ken was known to countless organ fans right across Surrey for his 30 year involvement with the West Surrey Organ & Keyboard Club. As well as being the leading light at their Shalford Village Hall venue, Ken was often to be found as an audience member at many other venues in the area. He will also be remembered for manufacturing a number of overhead mirrors as used by many current players on the circuit. In all, a wonderful personality who will be sadly missed by all who knew him.
It is with great regret that forthcoming concerts and dances on the Christie Organ at The Social Welfare Hall, Bircoates, Harworth have been cancelled until further notice due to unforeseen circumstances.
