CHALLENGE EXTENDED UNTIL 15TH NOVEMBER 2020
What do you like about living in Lanark? What do you think could be better?
We live in a very unique location with the Royal Burgh of Lanark, New Lanark World Heritage Site and the Falls of Clyde Wildlife Reserve – all on our doorstep! A group of organisations who represent these three areas are working hard on a plan named The Vision for Lanark (#LanarkVision) to help make this a better place to live, and to help spread the word far and wide about our special place ‘Lanark, New Lanark and the Falls of Clyde’.
Young people are the future of this area, so we’d like to know what your thoughts are! We are launching a Young People’s Photo Challenge to give all Primary and Secondary School students in this area the chance to have their say. The project is about Lanark and its surrounding area but any Grammar school pupils living outside the area may also take part, as long as their photographs are of the Lanark area.
The challenge is simple and involves two parts –
We want to know why you think it is special. Do other people know about it? If it is a place you really don’t like – we want to hear about that too! What’s wrong with it? How could it be improved?
We are offering a prize to the winner and the runner up in each of three school year categories and all the entries will be considered as part of the public response to the consultation currently taking place in the community on how to make Lanark and its surrounding area a better place to live, work and enjoy.
Please read below for the challenge’s full terms and conditions.
Prizes are sponsored by Border Biscuits Community Support Fund.

A VISION FOR LANARK (2020-2030)
Following the success in establishing Discover Lanark in 2019 to take forward the Business Improvement District, the Lanark Community Development Trust embarked on a new strategy in partnership with New Lanark Trust, Discover Lanark, and more recently the Scottish Wildlife Trust, to strengthen the heritage led approach to the regeneration of Lanark, New Lanark and the Falls of Clyde. A report “A Vision for Lanark 2020-2030” has been prepared by consultants as a basis for community consultation on how best to realise the Vision.
