Penicuik arts group in closure fear

A MIDLOTHIAN arts group is in danger of folding due to a lack of volunteers.

Penicuik Community Arts Association, founded in 1977, has arranged an emergency general meeting this month in a bid to find a way to continue.

Despite regular calls for new people to join the committee and help run the West Street Arts Centre, a recruitment drive has failed to drum up support and the group is now at crisis point.
