Denny Sports Centre, Falkirk Town Hall Theatre and the Bo’ness Hippodrome will be closed as the impact of the coronavirus pandemic continues to be felt locally.

The community trust has also decided to cancel all children’s sports lessons and its Easter holiday activity programme.

In a statement on its website the trust said the decisions had been taken following advice from the Scottish Government relating to social distancing measures to reduce the transmission of Covid-19.
