Following four months of restoration work, a service of rededication will be held at St Remigius' Church, Roydon, on Sunday, April 27 at 6.30pm.
The organ was restored by Rodney Briscoe and his staff from W & A Boggis. Mr William Boggis, founder of the firm, built and installed the organ in 1954. Now approaching 102, he was very interested to hear about the work.
Then, the church was filled with scaffolding to allow the walls and ceilings to be redecorated by John Taylor Builders. During this redecoration the full extent of the crack in the chancel arch was revealed and in consultation with architect and structural engineer, this crack was repaired with stainless steel stitching.
The total cost of all the work is around £25,000 and the Church is grateful for the legacies received which made this work possible.

Once the work had been completed, a band of cleaners moved in to get the work ready for the rededication Songs of Praise service, which will be led by the Bishop of Thetford, The Right Rev David Atkinson. Guest organist will be Mr Michael Mossendew from Old Hunstanton.
Organ-builder Rodney Briscoe and builder John Taylor, who both live in Roydon, plan to attend the service.
