Welcome to The Lanark Website and touch screens

I am delighted to be able to launch this year’s Burgess Ticket nomination window in partnership with the Royal Burgh of Lanark Community Council.

Now in its fifth year since being revived by the Community Council, the Burgess Ticket awards are a great way of saying thanks to someone you feel has made a positive impact in the town.

Nominees do not need to live in Lanark, but proposers and seconders must stay in the Royal Burgh.

The easiest way to propose someone you feel deserves the accolade is directly through The Lanark Website by clicking here. If you are reading this from one of the town’s touch screens, you can get involved on a desktop or mobile device.

You can nominate as many people as you like and they will all be put forward to the Community Council for consideration, with the recipients announced in September.

As ever if there is anything you would like to see included on The Lanark Website you can get in touch with me using the email address below and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

Best wishes,
