Lanark Community Development Trust has been working in partnership with Lanark Business Group and Lanark Rotary Club to make the town look more festive over the Christmas period. The Development Trust managed to get the funding to purchase 50 Christmas trees and LED lights to be fitted into specially designed wall mounted brackets on the frontage of various businesses in the town centre. The brackets were designed by Neil Macdonald and are dual purpose so that they can be used for hanging baskets in the summer. So far 33 businesses have taken us up on the offer. We are grateful to Jimmie Gilchrist of GP Plants for storing the trees and offering to install the brackets.
