Church Organist NeededChurch Organist Needed

Sunday 30th August

Appropriately to this bank holiday Sunday we have been told of a church in Suffolk that is in need of a church organist. Although this positen is often taken by a member of the local congregation and done for free, a fee is negotiable in this case.

The venue is a small 800 year old church with a simple pipe organ. Eucharist usually consists of hymns plus a little music before and after. The service usually takes about an hour or a little less. For Evening prayer once a month it is just four hymns and lasts about 45-50 minutes.

If you are interested please contact OrganFax and we will put you in touch with the church.

Publicity Is EverythingPublicity Is Everything

Sunday 23rd August

It's hard out there and getting new club members is SO important. Here is yet another great publicity idea from Weyhilll EOS.

Following the demise of the vehicle tax disc, the Club has produced its own 'disc' to insert in its place. The 'substitute', designed to the same dimensions, depicts the Society's badge/logo. Thus why not design and print something similar to the picture and give one to each of your club members.

Get your message out there. As they say at Tesco's 'every little helps!'
