‘The concert will be postponed until we can arrange a new date with him.

‘Apologies for the late change to our events schedule.’

The concert was planned to boost donations for the restoration of the Walker organ at the church.

Cllr New was due to perform a ‘selection of film, orchestral and modern music on his state of the art electronic organ’.
