THERE has been plenty going on across Clydesdale this week and the Gazette has been there every step of the way.
In Carluke a care home has been accused of not paying the new Minimum Wage rate to its employees for the whole of October while up in Lanark, after much controversy, the final plans have been revealed for Lanark’s most important commemoration of its war dead for almost a century.
We report that just weeks after his plans to house rats in caravans made national headlines, a developer is seeking planning approval to build new homes in a Crossford street and there is the build-up to Carluke’s Wear It Pink Day which will be held on Saturday.
It’s a New Beginning for a Clydesdale charity as it gets set to launch its annual Christmas appeal and we speak to Rev Alison Meikle as she prepares to say a fond farewell to St Nicholas Church in Lanark.
Members of two Lesmahagow organisations are aiming to create a new Community Action Plan for the village ahead of a major cash injection expected over the next few years while we also tell the story of a Lanark film-maker who grappled with Mongolian wrestlers on a trip of a lifetime to the country wearing Scotland’s national dress.
It’s all in this week’s Gazette, which is out tomorrow, priced at 80p.
