Forest of Dean Mechanical Organ Museum

If you fancy a day out and want to see something a little different, why not try the Forest of Dean Mechanical Organ Museum in Drybrook? It is well worth a visit, with automatic instruments over one hundred years old to see and listen to. From a coin operated polyphon musical box to street pianos, gramophones and graphophones, there will be something there to interest you. Proprietor Wally Marfell is particularly proud of his De Cap cafe organ. A traditional fairground organ, this mechanical masterpiece contains a playing accordian, a saxophone and drums as well as it's distinctive fairground organ sound, bringing back many nostalgic moments from the past.

The museum is open on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons between the hours of 2 pm and 5 pm from April to September. Special visits can be arranged by telephoning 01594 542 278. Suggested admission is £3.00 per person or £2.50 for groups and OAPs.

Macmillan Coffee Mornings

Various coffee mornings took place in and around Ross-on-Wye in aid of Macmillan, Cancer Relief. Pictured below are some of the events.

Immediately below at the Corn Exchange Council Offices are Ruby Price, Deputy Mayor Phil Cutter, Stella Bufton, Enid Gibbons, Augusta Stephens (Gussie), Soosie Pinnell, Mayoress Margaret Lucas and Fay Lerego.

At Ashfield Park School, where another coffee morning took place, one of the organizers, Ann Mince said, 'The morning was a wonderful community event involving parents, grandparents, friends and staff. The new Prefects carried out their first public duties and were a credit to the school. A massive thank you must be given to the teaching assistants who organized the event, also to the staff and pupils for producing the cakes. Kevin Lane, a local baker made a large cake which was raffled and many local businesses donated gifts as well. The total raised on the day was 350. It is hoped that this is the first of many such occasions at the school.

The third of the events I managed to get to was held at 'Euroclydon'. In the photograph, Joan Adams, Cath Crossmore, Elain Malsom, Jill Marfell (Organizer), Christine Clarke, Katheline Griffiths, Mary Latham, Jessie Tanner and Louise McCall with Baby, Baily McCall (8 weeks) can be seen enjoying the morning at the house, in the beautiful Drybrook countryside.
