AwardClue writerClueExplanation
FirstJ. F. GrimshawHasten to donate heart after death for affected person to use, or perhaps as organ for training (were there to be interest) 
SecondJ. C. LeylandAttend rehabilitation group to cut down on booze which has affected one aspect of marriage that may lead to our separation, i.e. it’s (entre nous) a little ‘organ’ problem 
ThirdR. J. WhaleHelp run a rehab centre, soup kitchen or medical charity – I want to be seen to encourage interest in organ donation 
VHCD. & N. AsplandMake haste to get teacher, a person who’d impress the need for pure sound on me, after I acquire interest in learning organ. 
VHCM. BarleyExtend further a winning streak that’ll ensure I’ll be showing off again the Azed salver; so, up to me to keep pleasing the setter in Sunday’s most instructive organ. 
VHCT. C. BorlandI’ll discard papers if their crosswords are hideous, just some show-off or pseud overdoing contrivance to grind solvers down – I’ll stick to a setter I enjoy! 
VHCC. J. BroughamAs one formerly into resurrection of his virtue, rehashing vows yearly, I’ll pretend no longer: I hereby give up resolutions, being more interested in acid rock and the musical larks it could engender.resurrection = body-snatching
VHCRev Canon C. M. BrounBe a better preacher, a sensible one – move quickly to conclusion, then shut up – or sermons will seem a show-off of theology and congregations lose interest, glad to substitute hymns and organ for teaching. 
VHCD. A. CampbellAttract more wildlife with rush beds for a heron or two, a sham quacker to make sure pochards come and a birdsong organ set in trees to draw in warblers etc. 
VHCN. C. DexterRise at dawn – no longer dash around for rehashed breakfasts, no further fake diarising (‘Rose punctually’, e.g.) – when in trees etc songbirds follow my arrangement. 
VHCV. DixonMake a Herculean effort each month to dash off the grid, then compose a super-original (not too smartass) clue of genuine interest – not a mechanical contrivance that’s ‘for the birds’. 
VHCR. J. HealdTo abandon rather a dead-end career as a musical play-actor and turn my pure soprano to better use of song to anyone with a passionate interest. 
VHCMrs S. G. JohnsonGood resolutions are hubris run mad, making one look a pseud; nonetheless, renouncing booze-ups or blow-outs may give the hepatic organ the rest it needs. 
VHCI. D. McDonaldGet up to speed at gym – heard our PE supreme’s a bit of a showman, so I’m interested in a personal trainer – for a lark! 
VHCRev M. R. MetcalfEngage in animal welfare and become a hero or super eco-warrior because I need to impress and raise interest in organ transplants. 
VHCC. J. MorseI mustn’t run down pop music again, having heard a pretentious fellow claim that some obscure opus for barrel organ was of more interest than Presley. 
VHCR. S. MorseI will rehabilitate my singing career and, since I aim to impress others, I will use professional help (if I can find a singing trainer who is interested). 
VHCD. ParfittTry to rehabilitate my career – I want to impress others by having a super occupation that will generate interest, such as ‘music producer’. 
VHCJ. M. SharmanGive Celebrity Big Brother a miss. Why rush home for such a pretentious type of programme. Jade is so puerile; I could teach the bird how to behave if I were interested (which I’m not). 
VHCD. J. ShortHasten to get heart treated – it’s sure operation’s needed for one wanting much attention, being vital organ that medics are interested in putting right. 
VHCP. VoogtAttend a rehabilitation clinic to curb my dependency on speed and address my drug use problem, which has turned me into an exhibitionist who flashes his organ in street eagerly. 
VHCMs S. WallaceHasten back to the gym for body rehab, though the instructor (or pseudo instructor) is one who ponces about, interested only in demonstrating apparatus to get the birds to sing his praises. 
VHCG. H. WillettHurry along to the rehab clinic to pep up resolve not to be a pretentious ass with undue interest in what may stimulate larks etc.
