Like many of us in the town, I’ve been following the progress at Castlebank Park with interest.

The team at Castlebank have carried out an extraordinary amount of work and it’s great to see additions such as the Horticultural Centre and Fairy Dell walk proving to be popular features in the town.

But in order to make Castlebank flourish once again they need your help and that’s why they’re hosting a volunteer induction session on Saturday 11th July at 11am.

People are often eager to help in such projects but can’t dedicate much time. Don’t let that put you off though, even an hour or two a week would be appreciated.

So if you can lend a helping hand make sure you head along, there’s even a barbecue taking place afterwards!

This is often a time of the year where we reflect on the Lanimers and that’s exactly what the latest edition of the View from the Cross does; you can read it by clicking here.

The winners of our Lanimer photography competition have also been decided and Millar Stoddart will be in touch soon so keep an eye on your inbox if you entered the competition!

The winner gets a £50 voucher for Frasers and the winner also gets a £25 voucher and thanks again to Frasers for their support, make you check out what your local outdoor store has to offer.

As ever if there’s anything you would like to see included on the Lanark Life website just send me an email using the address below and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.

Best wishes,
