It would be certainly interesting if more people brought their models for all to see at our next meeting in febuary.I shall be bringing along my model of the 98 key Marenghi organ that as all of you know more or less started the F.O.P.S in 1958 at the late Tom Alberts yard in Bolton just off Crompton Way (the remains of which can still be seen if you dig deep enough).If I have enough time I may also bring along a model of a typical 89 type Gavioli freelance which is based losely on a Black Forrest organ.

Remember it is your chance to show off what you have in the model world,I can vividly remember in the old days at The Post Graduate suite of Trafford Hospital all the various items that were displayed where have they gone???

Hi Nick
It would be interesting to see photographs of the organ models and details of how they were made and who made them.
Many will not be able to get to the AGM.

Hi Nick.
We did get a good selection of exhibits when the North West Group met at the Trafford Hospital.
I agree it would be nice to see them all once again at our AGM at Shawe Hall on Feb 19th.
