Passionate crafters have pledged to continue decorating Penicuik in colourful creations despite vandalism and complaints from some residents.

Penicuik Community Arts Association’s participation in the national Craft Bombing event last month saw the town wrapped in artworks that had been crocheted, knitted, weaved and sewn.

The al fresco “bombing” coincided with Voluntary Arts Week, with Midlothian Council giving permission for trees, posts and railings to be covered.
