Bilbster and Thuster Hall has had a facelift.

Bilbster and Thuster Hall has a new look with the original painted corrugated iron replaced by fresh cladding.

The work, funded from the Tannach & District Wind Farm Charitable Trust Fund, supported by Foundation Scotland, is part of a series of renovations to upgrade the building and its facilities.

A vote for the new colour was made on the hall's Facebook page with silver grey selected as the favourite. The old painted corrugated iron had been in place since the premises was built in 1928.

Explaining that the work was delayed due to Covid-19, Bilbster and Thuster Hall chairman Simon Harrison said: "It is looking great now. We have more people using the hall the last two or three years than we have had in a long time. We have craft classes, exercise classes and all sorts going on."

The hall committee plan to continue to improve the building while keeping the character of the old wooden panelling inside. An upgrade of the toilets will be one of the future renovations.
