WE’VE got plenty of interesting stories for you in this week’s issue of the Carluke and Lanark Gazette.
In Carluke, one of the town’s leading businessmen has slammed the Business Improvement District scheme to boost the town’s economic fortunes, claiming its chances of success are “virtually nil”.
In Lanark, the town’s Business Group, always on the look-out for novel ideas to boost town trade and attract visitors, is considering hiring a huge artificial waterslide to go down a street during a weekend in the late summer.
A major boost to the Clydesdale economy appears to be on the way with the announcement of the building of a 300 chalet holiday village near Ravenstruther while a £1.6 million plan to literally bring some new life into Carluke town centre AND rid it of an ugly gapsite has been unveiled.
We also speak to community groups in the Douglas Valley unhappy about not receiving cash from the Broken Cross opencast site.
Plus all your entertainment news, picture specials from High Mill and Robert Owen Primaries and a round-up from Lanark Sheriff Court.
It’s all in this week’s Gazette, priced at 80p.
