Members of Wragby Methodist Church were joined by members of the public to rededicate the church’s pipe organ on Saturday.

The organ, built in 1921 as the town’s memorial to those who fell in the Great War 1914-18, has undergone extensive restoration work in recent months.

As part of the organ’s restoration, a new plaque has been placed in a prominent position on the outer wall of the church, giving the details of those who died in the two World Wars.

Pictured at the organ is Jessie Skellern alongside the Revd Canon Alan Robson, who organised a Hymnathon at which people selected their favourite hymns to be played on the newly restored organ.
