A 40’ shipping container will be packed on Friday and taken off to the port to begin the long journey to the UK. A small pallet will be flown to the UK so that work can begin as soon as the team get home. Some of the timber work has gone to Sydney where it will be worked on there. It has been an absolute pleasure to have the four organ builders (John, Andy, Kelvin and Jordan) with us. They have become good friends.
This week the scaffolding comes down, organ material staying here will be stacked awaiting the rebuild next year, and the cleaning begins.
