Renovated Tolbooth calls for volunteers to celebrate Royal Burgh
There are a number of exhibitions planned at The Tolbooth in the coming months
Lanark’s newly-refurbished Tolbooth is now open seven days a week with a range of exhibitions and events planned in the coming months – and you can be a part of it.
The committee is looking for volunteers to help welcome visitors to the town centre and support new and existing events.
Jamie Hill, Chairman of the management committee, is looking forward to the coming months.
He said: “If you haven't been into the refurbished Tolbooth, please come! It is open every day from 10am until 4pm, and there is currently an exhibition of old Lanark High Street photographs. The exhibition will keep changing.
“The Tolbooth is now officially a ‘heritage centre and arts hub’. We hope to build up expertise in Lanark's heritage and be able to direct and inform visitors; and we hope to build up an up-to-date directory of local groups and societies involved in all aspects of the Arts and Crafts.
“Also, The Tolbooth will remain a community resource, available for hire, table-top sales, club functions etc. There is also free wifi in the building.
“If you have literature, bring us some; if you have names of people who run the groups and societies please come and put us right. And please let us know about any arts groups and societies that you are a member of, and how we can find out more.
“Come and see what we are doing in the heart of the town. It is an exciting work-in-progress!”
