Following a meeting of the selection panel, the Lord Cornet Elect for 2019 will be Ian Douglas.
Ian is well know around Lanark and is a keen horseman, having taken part in numerous common rides throughout his life. He is a keen supporter of Lanimers and has ridden in many Lanimer Day processions and ride outs.
Ian was a key force in the reinstatement of the Edinburgh Riding of the Marches and was The Edinburgh Captain in 2009.
Ian is a member of the Lanimer Committee and is currently the Vice Convener for the Marches – an event this year which he will have a very different involvement with!
In 2015, Ian formed the Lanark Riding Association – a group with the main aim of growing participation in equestrian events within the town.
Ian grew up in Lanark and attended Lanark Grammar school.
Ian is married to Michelle and they have a daughter, Erin. Ian is truly honoured to be elected as our Standard Bearer for 2019.
Lanark Community Development Trust would like to congratulate Ian on his appointment, and wishes him all the best for a memorable year.
Lanimer Week 2019 takes place from 2nd – 8th June, with Lanimer Day on Thursday 6th June 2019.
