Peter Beck-Samuels, Chairman of Moffat Town Hall Redevelopment Trust said:

"This is just phase one of what we want to do.

"Most of the £600,00 will be spent on the roof and exterior, making it a focal point in the town once more.

"Inside work will be done to the stage and library too. It will really breathe life back into the building."

£600k refurb for Moffat town hall

Work has begun on a £600,000 refurbishment of Moffat town hall.

The hall, which was built in 1827, was bought by a local trust in 2009.

Members from the trust have now taken control of the management of the repair works, which are being jointly financed between Historic Scotland and Dumfries and Galloway Council.

Major repairs to the windows, roof and stonework are needed to preserve the building.
