Welcome to The Lanark Website

It’s been a busy week here at The Lanark Website as we’ve been helping the Lanark Community Development Trust with their petition to transform the derelict sawmill building at Castlebank Park.

The Development Trust has submitted its application to the Big Lottery Fund for £500,000 to renovate the building but the Lottery has indicated that significant public support would help the bid.

If the Development Trust is successful the sawmill building will be used as a classroom area for delivering horticulture courses with a kitchen, office space and the potential to act as a hub and meeting place for local groups.

It takes just 30 seconds to pledge your support and it could make all the difference as the Development Trust looks to continue its impressive work at Castlebank Park.

You can sign the petition by clicking here and don’t forget to share it with your family and friends.

Best wishes,
