The builders are in and the refurbishment of the Waverley Hall is well underway now!
Thanks to our successful applications for funding from the Scottish Government’s Town Centre Communities Capital Fund, Trusthouse Foundation, Dumfries and Galloway Council and a few other generous trusts, our community will soon have a brand new facility to use.
The building works so far have revealed the original proscenium arch over the stage and the walls have been stripped back to the original stone. In time, new insulation and plaster boarding will be put in place, to make the hall a nice, warm environment for everyone. The new partition wall in the old kitchen is now in place, which will divide the kitchen from the new disabled toilet. A new fire exit door is being installed next to the stage and the old one at the end of the corridor (next to the steps leading up to the stage) is being removed and blocked in. Keep checking back for more updates of the capital works!
