It has been another busy week in the Royal Burgh with the Hyndford Quarry consultation at the forefront of our minds at Lanark Life.

Head over to the news page for the latest developments on the inquiry over this highly controversial issue.

The vast majority of Lanarkians – and indeed onlookers from across the world – have made their views clear and they are vehemently against this proposal.

The Scottish Government is expected to make its decision later this year and it will be interesting to see what their conclusion will be and how they have reached their verdict.

Good luck to local group ICE Lanark who are performing their latest show, Ice, Rattle n Roll at St Nicholas Church Hall. They have been working hard over the summer and I am sure they will do well!

There’s a new feature on the Lanark Life website this week as we take a look at days gone by with the Look Back in Time section – did you know that our town does have some links with the famous Dr David Livingstone? Click here to find out more.

Millar Stoddart is on the ball with his sports news this week with reports from all of the nearby junior football clubs, as well as a round-up from Lanark Golf Club.

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

Best wishes,
