With the Christmas Market over for another year the festive season is well and truly upon us here in the Royal Burgh.

There’s an eclectic mix of events taking place in the town during the run up to Christmas – so much so that a Winterfest brochure has been produced – and don’t forget to check out the popular What’s On guide to discover what you can get up to in the town.

This year’s Late Night Lanark is shaping up nicely and I’m sure that the illuminated Lanimer entries will attract a large crowd on Friday. Click here to discover more about the event.

I’m delighted that the Lanark Community Development Trust has been awarded a £30,000 grant to deliver a wide range of projects in the area next year.

Two digital touch screens will be put up in the town, incorporating content from the Lanark Life website.

We’re putting the finishing touches to the redesigned website and it’ll be ready in the coming weeks – think of it as an early Christmas present!

As ever if there’s anything you would like to see included 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,
