Thanks very much for sharing this Brian. It is great that the organ has a new life and that a plaque on it, records its story! I hope you get back to playing it again soon.
Together with some volunteers from Oddington I removed the organ from Islip Methodist Church and after massively rebuilding the workings of it with another windchest and new action components I set it up at St Andrew’s Oddington where I play it normally twice a month (The Covid lockdown and repairs to Oddington Church at the moment in 2020 are preventing this)
Thanks for identifying your parents in this photo, Philip. Your father made an incredible contribution to the life of Wesley Memorial Church especially in his profession as an architect. The Early’s, as you know, were a leading family in the Witney’s High Street Methodist Church as well as the wider Church. Please feel free to share other memories.
