October Week has come and gone but it's full steam ahead here at Lanark Life towers with plenty going on in and around the town at the minute.

The popular What’s On section is packed full of local events and well worth a look; are there any others you would like to see featured? Just send me an e-mail and I’ll add it to the guide.

Speaking of events, the Biggar Little Festival gets underway this weekand it’s good to see this Clydesdale celebration go from strength to strength.

One of the town’s most important assets is St Kentigern’s however I must admit that I have feared for its future recently. With temperatures already plummeting in the town as we head into winter, was the future of this historical landmark under threat?

Thankfully this doesn’t seem to be the case for the time being with emergency repairs set to take place in the next few days and hopefully this is just the start of more improvements being made in the coming months.

The View from the Cross returns and it’s a packed edition full of opinion on a wide range of local issues. Have you had a look yet?

And finally well done to Lanark Grammar for launching their Lanark Lives Languages project last week.

Lanark Life will be working closely with the school to and there’s a dedicated section about the initiative on the website that you can read by clicking here.

As ever if there is anything you would like to see featured on the Lanark Life website just get in touch and I will get back to you as soon as I can!

Best wishes,
