This year's FOPS AGM was held at the Black Country Museum last Saturday.

The meeting was well attended with around 100 members.

The Arthur Mills Rosebowl was awarded to Bill Hunt for the preservation of the Wonderland organ.

A special plaque to commemorate the FOPS visit to the Museum was presented to event coordinator John Harrold for placement in the museum.

There were three visiting organs, Brian Wells Gavioli, Margaret Cook's Bruder and a hand turned from John Harrold's collection.

You can listen to three audio recordings from the meeting:
