We are an association for all those who love to hear and play the organ, and enjoy choral music.  

We hold a variety of events including talks, recitals and often there is an opportunity for those attending to play the organs we visit.  We arrange visits to churches, chapels and other locations in the West Cheshire, Wirral and North-East Wales to see and hear interesting instruments.  We produce a monthly newsletter with items of interest to our members. 

Our next meeting  is our AGM and Dinner.  This will  be held on Tuesday 13th June, 7.00pm at the Club Rachel MahonHouse Restaurant, Upton-by-Chester Golf Club, Upton Lane, Chester CH2 1EE .    Our guest speaker  will be Rachel Mahon (Assistant Organist, Chester Cathedral).    The AGM will be followed by dinner(at about 7:45pm).

This year’s meal will be a carvery and vegetarian option is available if notified in advance; there will also be a choice of desserts, followed by tea/coffee.   Menu choices will be made ‘on the night’.  The cost is £18 per person.  If you wish to attend (and perhaps bring a guest) you need to send  your payment, by cheque payable to CNEWOCA, to our treasurer, David Bird, as soon as possible (115 Liverpool Road, Chester  CH2 1BB).
