It’s always nice to see hard-working Lanarkians recognised for their efforts in the town and well done to those who were lucky enough to have been chosen for an award at the Council’s community service awards ceremony.

Congratulations to Lex Kennedy, Robert Kirkhope, Millar Stoddart and Margot Yates who were all honoured at the event.

It was a privilege to be able to have met Nan Henderson, who celebrated her 100th birthday last Sunday.

Nan has lived in the town all her life and she is still active in the community, attending her Church every Wednesday.
Congratulations, Nan!

Our Lord Cornet Elect, David Murdoch, has revealed his colours for the year ahead and chosen a Commonwealth Games theme for the local shop windows. Hopefully the shops will keep their displays up when the Queen’s Baton relay visits the town shortly after Lanimer week.

Lanark United recorded an important 3-1 victory over Cambuslang Rangers as they look to avoid relegation. Millar Stoddart has all the details plus more in his excellent sports round-up.

If you’re looking for something to do this weekend check out local club ICE, who are performing their Something for the Weekend show at Lanark Memorial Hall. It promises to be an entertaining event and good luck to this talented group who I’m sure will do well.

New Lanark is the place to be for an Easter egg-stravaganza of fun where the kids can take part in plenty of activities to keep them busy over the Easter weekend.

If there’s anything you would like to be featured on the Lanark Life website just let me know and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can!

Best wishes,
