The Royal Burgh of Lanark Community Council presented six Burgess Tickets to this year’s hard-working recipients to celebrate their achievements in the town.
The Annual Burgess Award Event took place at Lanark Memorial Hall on Tuesday 17th September.
The tradition was revived by the Community Council in 2013 and runs in partnership with The Lanark Website, which is used to collate votes easily and quickly.
Burgess Ticket holders are nominated by local residents and put forward to a judging panel for selection.
This year’s recipients are: Lisa Archibald, Alan Boyd, Janice Coulter, Margaret Frood, Jimmy Gilchrist and Brian Reilly.
Congratulations to all recipients!
