Penicuik artists and community groups will be on a mission next week to add a splash of colour to areas of the town.

As part of Voluntary Arts Week, Penicuik Community Arts Association launches Brightening Penicuik in the town hall on Saturday at noon.

Craft bomb installations, including cuckoos and pompoms, will festoon the town. GirlGuiding, Penicuik North Kirk Arts and Crafts fellowship, and Penicuik YMCA are amongst those involved.

Penicuik Arts Centre-based activities include a creative writing workshop for teenagers on Sunday and an informal drawing and painting session on Wednesday.
