CLYDESDALE Camera Club members are busy putting the finishing touches to two events taking place in Lesmahagow this weekend.

The club will be hosting an informal evening tonight (Friday) night which will feature slideshows of the village both past and present.

The village fair on Saturday will also give members the opportunity to show of a series of prints with the fair expected to bring a large crowd into the Fountain Hall.

Two similar events were held last year with packed houses on both occasions and Clydesdale Camera Club president John Zawadski is hoping for the same level of interest this time around.

He said: “We have two such events on a Friday night and both have been successful with both being full houses, which was great to see.

“We had two events last year so I think this will be our only event this year but we are hoping for a similar response to last year.

“We will be looking at not just old buildings and sights but the people of the village.”
