Well it looks like the good weather has well and truly gone in Lanark this week.

One group of Lanarkians that will certainly be far from happy this week is our school pupils (and maybe some of the teachers too!) who are back to school this week. I hope that everyone got the results that they were hoping for and we wish you well for the year ahead.

Now that the Post Office is officially set to move to Bannatyne Street next month, it will be interesting to see how much of an impact that has on this area of the town. It is usually particularly tight for motorists during peak times and time will tell whether or not Lanark copes with this change.

It has been a busy week of Lanark sport and it was fantastic to see Charlie Telfer make his Premiership debut for Dundee United on Sunday afternoon. Needless to say we all wish Charlie well and I am sure that he will go on to be a big success in Scottish football.

If you’re looking for something to do in the town this weekend then the Circus is back in Lanark – although I’m sure you will already know about that since their posters are just about everywhere in the town!

As ever if there is anything you would like to see included on the Lanark website just send me an e-mail using the address below and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

The Lanark Life website is completely free and it always will be.

Best wishes,
