The former Bothkennar Community Hall, in Newton Avenue, Skinflats, is now known as the Spectrum Venue.

The new owners stated: “We recently took over the community hall – it’s an ideal venue for sports and fitness classes, slimming groups, arts and crafts, parties and various events.

"There is a lot happening to the place in preparation for the end of COVID-19 – new sound, light and various other things to make the place as good as we possibly can.”

Bothkennar Hall at the launch of the Bothkennar Activity Centre last year - the premises has since been taken over and is now known as the Spectrum Venue

This is the second name change for the premises in the space of a year – at the start of 2020 it was relaunched as Bothkennar Activity Centre and had a grand opening event to allow guests to try their hand at everything from sumo wrestling to animal-handling.
