We’re not getting much luck with the weather at the minute, are we?

Don’t let the gloomy days dampen your spirits though as there are plenty of events taking place in and around the town this summer so make sure you check the What’s On guide for everything you need to know.

It was great to hear that Police Scotland have named one of their latest horses after the town following how popular it was with local youngsters during Lanimer Week.

It was a nice touch of class by Police Scotland to name their newest recruit after our Royal Burgh and hopefully we see Lanark the horse out and about at Lanimer events in years to come.

With 2015 being the bicentenary of the Battle of Waterloo, The Gleaner returns with a fascinating Look back in Time feature on one of Lanark’s adopted citizens, click here to check it out.

As ever if there’s anything you would like to see featured on the Lanark Life 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,
