NEWS UPDATE – March 2023


Hello Friends…

We are thrilled to report that installation of our Wurlitzer pipe organ is now well underway.  Richard Larritt and Peter Hosking, organ builders from Adelaide in Australia, have taken on the project and have made several working visits to get things started.


The pipe ranks are now in the chambers and wiring and winding work is now the centre of attention.


Just to keep WOTA solvent, covering general admin costs, right up to those massive insurance and the annual audit fees, we need to find $7500!  This can only be met by Friends of the Wurlitzer subscriptions and those wonderful donations. Remember please, all donations are Tax deductible, and we issue receipts for all donations over $5.00.


If you can help with a donation, please email for our bank account details.  Unfortunately, now, we are unable to accept payments by cheque.


Heartfelt thanks to our big supporters
