Winter Newsletter brings vivid colour to church work
The East Church winter 2010/11 newsletter is now out and features a man in a grass skirt and some vivid colours.
Sounds a bit surprising for a church? Well, it wasn't in 1702; that is the date on the painted woodwork, pictured right.
They are the remaining pieces of the armorial panels of Sir Kenneth Mackenzie and his wife Anne Campbell. The panels have survived being reused as the back of pews in the east loft (possibly from the late 1700s) and have now been skillfully cleaned and varnished by Fiona Allardyce and Karen Dundas of Scottish Wall Paintings Conservators.
