I believe i had an insight into why dick whitington turned. My wife and i popped into Southwark Cathedral at the tail end of the Windrush service, just as we were leaving the organist was blowing out the tubes with an amazing version of `Oranges and Lemons said the bells...` the top notes seemed to hug the ceiling and the base notes roar like thunder. I certainly turned back to listen when i heard what that little old tune was capable of in the right hands!! I wonder if it would be possible to persuade the Cathedral to have some organ recitals of these old london tunes in this dramitic manner?

Is'nt it about time Driscoll House (Hotel) was pulled down. The building is an eye sore, and the accomodation is only mediocre to say the least.
