Here’s a chance for an adventure for a good cause.

Looking for some adventure this Summer? Things to do in Cumbria in June and July now got more exciting and more charitable. If you want you can join St. Lawrence’s Church Tower Challenge in Aid of  the Church Organ Restoration Project on June 31st and July 1st.  Furthermore there’ll be an Open Gardens event and refreshments at Crosby Ravensworth Village Hall. You can enjoy these carvings of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert amongst others on this lovely old church. See if you can find the mouse!

What a lovely instrument it is! Its music is very fine. I remember pumping the bellows manually once when the automatic bellows failed, for my father who was then church organist to play. Phew, was that hard work! Thank goodness for the electric air pump.
