SOCIETIES NEWSStirling launches first Scottish Church trailAs part of its 20th-anniversarycelebrations, Stirling DFASdesigned and launched Scotland'sfirst NADFAS Church Trail. TheBridge of Allan Parish Church waschosen for the trail as it featurescarved oak furniture by Scottishdesigner Charles RennieMackintosh and stained glass by anumber of leading artists.On a beautiful sunny day,children from the Stirling YoungArts Group were first to test outthe trail through the church and itssurrounding area. They learnedabout the stained glass, furnitureand textiles, and were encouragedto make drawings. An Easter egghunt in the grounds of the churchwas a perfect ending to a morningthat was thoroughly enjoyed by thechildren and their parents. StirlingDFAS looks forward to welcomingmore visitors to the church andhope that the trail inspires childrento explore other churches at homeand abroad.Societies NewsA snapshot of Society and Area activities across the country58NADFAS REVIEW / AUTUMN 2010www.nadfas.org.ukIn 2009, Cheam DFAS, inconjunction with Sutton EducationBusiness Partnership (Art in theWorld of Work) sponsored aproject at Nonsuch High School forGirls in Cheam.
