Historic Pipe Organ Restotation
Click on this link to read details.

Follow the work on our Facebook site https://www.facebook.com/NairnStNinianOrganRestoration2015

The restoration work commenced on Monday 20th April and is expected to take about six to eight weeks to complete.  Allowing for unforeseen problems and final regulation of the instrument, the re-dedication recital will take place on Saturday 1st August at 7.00 p.m. and will be given by Graham Maclagan, Associate Director of Music at the Parish Church of Saint Cuthbert, Princes Street Gardens, Edinburgh and Teacher of Music at George Heriot's School, Edinburgh.  Please put this date in your diary, do come, and bring your friends!

Now that the work is under way we need to draw up a list of 16 volunteers to be on a rota at times when the sdanctuary is open to visitors.  We really need your help in this regard; please do not think that you don't know enough about the organ to do this - help and training on the history of the church and the organ works will be given to volunteers before you are expected to take part.  Please do give your names to Grace or Clifford.

The idea is that visitors will be able to collect a booklet about the church and particularly the organ and view the permanent display on the restotation works.  The booklet and display will be made by local school pupils..
