WHAT a week it was for Beer's Wurlitzer as more than �800 was raised towards its restoration.
The seven days of entertainment, which took place in August, have provided a massive boost to the Friends of BeerWurly (FoBW).
This dedicated group wants to raise enough money to return England's oldest Wurlitzer to its former glory and, thanks to the generosity of Beer residents and visitors, it is well on its way to achieving this target.
Once enough money has been raised, the percussion instruments and comedy effects will be reinstated on the organ which in housed in Beer Congregational Church.
