Reed church’s Organ Fund launches with sell-out concert

A fundraising campaign to replace Reed parish church’s organ is well under way after the village choir’s sell-out summer concert.
The performance by Reed Choir - which was held last Saturday at St Mary's Church - was attended by more than 80 audience members, raising £750.
The church organ is made up of parts of a larger instrument from West Sussex, which the Reed church paid for in the 1970s. It has been in decline over the last decade.
It is thought to cost more than £100,000 to replace, and is part of wider works to restore the Anglo-Saxon church to its prime.
"It was a wonderful occasion," said concert organiser, Liz Kershaw.
"The audience were very appreciative and generously gave to the cause. It was the perfect way to launch our fundraising campaign."
