IT has been another busy week in Clydesdale and the Gazette has been there every step of the way.

In Carluke, a new playpark, costing almost £150,000 will be built in the town while in Lanark excitement is building ahead of the Wallace Weekend this Saturday and Sunday.

A Clydesdale nursing home claims it has now overcome the problems criticised by the government care watchdog last year while assurances have been issued that there is no cut-and-dried ‘deal’ between the council and a housing developer over the building of a new school in Elsrickle.

Police in Clydesdale are launching a crackdown on crime in rural areas and the first ‘shots’ have been fired in the so-called second battle against the proposed Hill Rig Windfarm.

We speak to Hamilton Accies star Ali Crawford who is backing next month’s Carluke on the Run plus there is also an interview with a Lanark DJ, who could become the next Calvin Harris after signing a record deal with an American label.

There are picture specials from Auchlochan’s VE Day celebrations and from the annual Cameronian Conventicle, held in Douglas last weekend.

Make sure you pick up a copy of this week’s Gazette, priced at 80p.
