Well it’s back to work for many people this week and we’re no different here at Lanark Life, it’s a shame the good weather has come to an end!

I was saddened to hear about the passing of Dr Eric Paterson, a well-known Lanarkian, on Tuesday. Millar Stoddart has paid tribute to him and it is well worth a read.

Interestingly, the Lanark Loch toilet situation appears to have a temporary solution. Along with a newly-refurbished kiosk, toilets have appeared however they will not be operational on a full-time basis. Better than nothing though I suppose!

The latest edition of the View from the Cross is here and it’s definitely worth a read. Last month’s edition certainly split opinion among Lanarkians and the VFTX has promised to reply to any comments on the Lanark Life Facebook page!

Lanark footballer Dougie Imrie was in good form at the weekend, scoring the only goal of the game in Morton’s 1-0 victory over Dundee and his goal could be pivotal in deciding the outcome of the Scottish Championship.

Well done to Lanark Swimming Club member Shoina McClafferty who clinched one gold, four silver and four bronze gold medals at the Great Britain Deaf Long Course Championships!

The Spotlight On feature has returned and I took a trip to Lanark Air Training Corps to find out more about what they do in the area and how Lanarkians can get involved.

If there is anything you would like to be featured on the Lanark Life website just let me know and I will get back to you as soon as I can!

Best wishes,
