Join Lanark in Bloom for T in the Tolbooth this weekend

Don’t miss your chance to buy Lanark in Bloom’s local produce this Saturday

Who needs T in the Park when you can have T in the Tolbooth instead?

Scotland’s iconic music festival is on hold this year but you can head to the Tolbooth for Lanark’s very own celebration of all things local this weekend.

Lanark in Bloom are having their annual fundraiser this Saturday from 10am until 4pm with a wide range of produce grown at Castlebank Horticulture Centre on sale. Head upstairs and you and enjoy tea and coffee plus an array of tempting treats.

Ernest Romer, chairman of Lanark in Bloom, is looking forward to the event and hopes that it will help the group edge ever closer towards buying a much-needed new van to keep the town centre looking at its best this summer.

He said: “Basically there will be books, a tombola and baking. We used to do records and tapes but I was always left with them! We’ll have a selection of plants from the Horticulture Centre on sale too.

“We try to do two fundraisers every year, one in the autumn and one in the spring.”
