Ms Rosemary Mann, Secretary of The Mansfield Traquair Trust
The Mansfield Traquair Trust was formed in 1993 in response to public concern about the deterioration of the condition of the former Catholic Apostolic Church in Mansfield Place, Edinburgh. There had been significant damage to the murals by Phoebe Anna Traquair and at the time there was no viable use for the building. The aims of the Mansfield Traquair Trust are to seek a sustainable long-term future for the building and to ensure that the fabric and the murals are repaired and conserved for the benefit of the public at large. All income and expenditure is dedicated to achieving these aims. There is now a Board of Trustees who bring a wealth of experience in fields of art, architecture, history of art and architecture, fund-raising, the conservation and reuse of historic buildings, project and building management. Join Rosemary in September to hear about the fascinating history of this building.
