A very enjoyable afternoon was had by all who attended the launch of the second edition of the Illustrated Guide to the Wall Paintings.

Sir Hugo Brunner was introduced by Canon Ian Cohen and in turn wittily introduced the new book, complimenting Bob Heath-Whyte on a very interesting and well produced guide. Madeleine Katkov showed us some close ups of different aspects of the paintings and then Bob told us what was new in the book. Wine and canapes were served while books were signed. Many thanks to The Red Lion for the refreshments and to Jeanette and the team of volunteer guides who looked after the serving.
