Welcome to The Lanark Website

The countdown to the Lanimers is well and truly on and The Lanark Website will be joining the fun as always with our extensive coverage of the celebrations.

This is always a nice time of the year to be in Lanark. You can sense the excitement slowly building as everyone pulls together to mark this fantastic tradition. I always look forward to seeing the bunting and banners go up in the High Street, small things like this can make a big difference.

Speaking of the town centre, have you read the latest Let’s Be Frank yet? It takes a look and what can be done to improve the High Street and beyond; it’s definitely worth a read.

Castlebank Park is flourishing at the moment and that’s all down to the hard-working volunteers. The new rose garden looks fantastic and the wooden William Wallace sculpture is a great feature.

I feel that I can’t sign off this week’s column without mentioning Paradventures after their recent trip to Aviemore with pupils from Lanark Grammar. We are lucky to have such a dedicated organisation committed to making a difference in the town.

As ever if there’s anything you would like to see on The Lanark Website just send me an e-mail using the address below and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can – it’s your website!

Best wishes,
