This week’s front page highlights two crunch meetings to discuss Carluke’s future.

One will discuss hopes of turning the historic High Mill into a historic tourist attraction; the other will discuss the rebirth of shopping Carluke High Street.

The Lanark page looks at the hopes and fears of Leadhills villagers, who want a community buy-out of Leadhills Estate but now face a new plan for a windfarm on the hills around them.

There is news of a major motorsport meeting to be held in aid of Carluke cancer sufferer Joan Purdie, wife of stock car ace Kenny, for experimental treatment, and the latest progress in raising funds for a cancer charity as Carluke teenager Erin McCafferty battles leukaemia.

In Lanark Gordon Jess is announced as the 2016 Lanimer Lord Cornet and as the torrential rain continues, Ron Harris looks back to the Carstairs Junction flood of 1915.

All this, plus your local news, letters and sport, in the shops tomorrow morning.
