With the summer holidays now over everything seems to be getting back to normal in the Royal Burgh.

The schools are open again, our local sports clubs are back in action again and any sign of some decent weather seems to have well and truly gone!

We’ve been busy working on the redesign of the new website and I’m sure you’ll really enjoy the new version so keep checking back over the next few weeks as things could look very different.

Life seems very different at Moor Park compared to 12 months ago with Lanark United looking very strong as they look to return to the Central First Division at the first time of asking.

Don’t forget you can read full match reports from all of our Clydesdale junior football clubs every week here on the website as well as a wide range of sports content by Millar Stoddart.

Despite facing overwhelming negativity towards the school bus cuts, it is interesting to note that South Lanarkshire Council has given the proposal the green light with the changes set to be implemented next April.

Their executive committee meeting was fascinating to see the least and don’t expect this to be the last we hear of this controversial issue.

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,
