The dark evenings are now upon us for another year but don’t despair as Lanark Life is here to brighten up your day by letting you know all about what’s happening in the Royal Burgh!

This week is a big occasion for the Community Council as it will cease to exist in its current format. As of next Monday a new version of the Community Council will be introduced. Who better to tell you all about the changes than Frank Gunning? Click here to find out more.

I was delighted to see that The Hope Café marked its first birthday in the town last week and this valuable community resource continues to go from strength to strength.

Some of you will know that the Lanark Business Group recently launched a survey for local shopkeepers to learn about how the organisation could improve in the coming months.

Keep an eye out over the coming days for some of the interesting results from the survey.

It’s great to see that The Great Tapestry of Scotland has already become a popular attraction at New Lanark. It’s currently on display there until the end of November and entry to view the Tapestry is free. Have you had a look yet?

Don’t forget that this Saturday is the annual fireworks display at Moor Park, home of Lanark United. Be sure to get there early so you can get a good view of the show!

As ever if there’s anything you would like to see featured 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!
