What’s in this week’s Gazette?

Our front page story is concern at the levels of debt and benefits fears showing up in the work of Clydesdale Advice Bureau. No signs of improvement there.

And NHS Lanarkshire also shows concern at the way things are going, calculating that some 35,000 people are now using food banks in Lanarkshire with effects on their health and wellbeing.

Lanark Doctors have changed the way they organise appointments, with a new system which should allow patients to be seen on the day they phone up, and New Lanark is providing the world’s first organic tartan, with yarn taken from sheep from a royal flock.

There are photos of the Remembrance services in Carluke and Lanark, and Lanark children are looking forward to BBC Children in Need on Friday as they will be appearing!

And as we head into winter, Carluke is already looking ahead to next summer, choosing its gala queen and court.

This, with your letters and all your district news, in the shops tomorrow morning.
