I’m looking forward to attending the World War One commemorative service next week.

A lot of hard work has gone into the event and the Community Council are hoping for a big turnout so spread the word!

It has been quite a busy summer in Lanark this year and we’ve been lucky enough to have some great weather to go for a walk or a trip to the Loch, let’s just hope that it continues in the coming weeks.

We’re putting the finishing touches on a special World War One feature for next week so keep your eyes peeled for when that goes online – it’ll be worth the wait!

Our local football clubs have been competing for the Clydesdale Cup this week but Lanark United won’t be in the final after losing 2-1 against Lesmahagow.

It was an entertaining game at Moor Park and, as always, we will be keeping you up-to-date with all the latest news from the Yowes this season as and when it happens.

As ever if there’s anything that you would like to see featured on the Lanark Life website then just get in touch using the e-mail address below and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.

Best wishes,
