Cel­e­bra­tion will strike right chord for church

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - UK & World Update -

MEM­BERS of a Peter­bor­ough church are hold­ing a spe­cial event to­day to cel­e­brate the restora­tion of its Vic­to­rian or­gan. Pas­ton All Saints’ Church on Ful­bridge Road, has a full pro­gramme to say thanks to fundrais­ers and show res­i­dents and bud­ding his­to­ri­ans the newly re­fur­bished church cen­tre piece. Dur­ing the morn­ing there will be a chance to not only see in­side the or­gan, with the help of a guided talk, but also there will be a op­por­tu­nity to have a go. Later there will be a full choral even­song with the Peter­bor­ough Cathe­dral Vol­un­tary Choir. As a spe­cial treat for the evening Peter­bor­ough Cathe­dral or­gan­ist, An­drew Reid, will be giv­ing a spe­cial recital on the in­stru­ment. The or­gan, which is more than 100 years old, cost £18,000 to re­store it to its full glory and work was com­pleted in time for the con­gre­ga­tion’s Easter cel­e­bra­tions. Church or­gan­ist Ainslie Grubb said: “We are de­lighted to have our or­gan back to its for­mer glory and thought that this would be an ex­cel­lent way of cel­e­brat­ing.” And so­cial com­mit­tee chair­man and or­gan­iser of the day, Steve Cuts, added: “We were thrilled to raise the restora­tion money in such a short time. “We thought this would be an ex­cel­lent way of say­ing thank you.”
