Food bank row...in this week's Gazette

IT’S been another busy week in Clydesdale and the Gazette reporters have been out and about getting the latest stories from across the area.

In Carluke, tributes have been paid to a popular former Carluke Rovers player who collapsed and died while playing football on Friday evening while in Lanark, there is a gorwing belief that a South Lanarkshire Leisure decision could threaten the existence of Lanark Panto Club.

As concern grows over the prospect of pupils having to walk three miles to school instead of qualifying for a school bus for a two-mile distance, one parent has launched a petition against the change and a local undertaker hits out at the council as it revealed the cost of burying a lived one costs £700 more in Clydesdale than it does a few miles away in North Lanarkshire.

The Clydesdale Food Bank co-ordinator has appealed to the next UK Government to make her role redundant as soon as possible while rural Clydesdale’s Conservative MP David Mundell has expressed fury at a plan to build 140 giant wind turbines in the Lowther Valley.

There is also news of a care home closure in Lesmahagow, all the latest news from Lanark Sheriff Court plus our new Weekender section!

It’s all in this week’s Gazette, priced at 80p.
