Congratulations to Carolyn Graham who has been named our Crowning Lady for 2015!

A big well done also goes to Lanark’s Charlie Telfer who was in fine form last weekend, bagging a brace in Dundee United’s 3-1 win over Motherwell at Tannadice.

The 19-year-old has gone from strength to strength this term and I have no doubt that the future is looking very bright for Lanark’s latest sporting star.

Are you planning on going along to see the Prestonpans Tapestry at New Lanark? The free exhibition opened on Tuesday and you can view the 104m long display daily from 10am until 4pm.

It’s good to see the Rotary Club of Lanark continuing to help the community and it was great to see that three Lanark Grammar pupils all benefited from the Rotary Challenge Enterprise initiative.

The Rotary Club of Lanark are also holding a Casino Night at the Harry Smith Centre next month, head over to the What’s On guide to find out more.

Owenstown has been a controversial issue in the local area over the years and officials now face an anxious wait to see if the project will be approved after taking part in the three-day public hearing in Rigside last week. Would you approve the development?

As ever if there is anything you would like to see featured on the Lanark Life website just send me an e-mail using the address below and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

Best wishes,
