RENOVATIONS to one of the region’s most historic buildings are finally finished after intricate paintwork on four pilasters was completed.
After four years of hard work, mainly from volunteers and thousands of pounds worth of investment the court room in the Forres Tolbooth now has a new lease of life.
The finishing touches were completed by interiors decorator Jeremy Taylor who restored the four pilasters which stand proudly over the court room with a marbling affect.
The work to restore the paintwork took a painstaking 44 hours, 11 hours for each of the pilasters.
The court room has undergone major refurbishment and the Forres Heritage Trust which is responsible for maintaining the building hopes the work makes the space more appealing for hire and hosting its own events.
The works which have included a full re-paint, replacement of wooden panelling, a new carpet, the ceiling being thoroughly cleaned and insulated, and all doors sanded and varnished
New floor to ceiling curtains have also been handmade and a state of the art multi-media system installed.
