Caoimhe Rea Lights up Law 2015

Below are Photographs of the Mindless Vandalism carried out in early morning between 4/5 o’clock on the 19 April 2016 to the new Play Park Equipment, that so many People from the Community have worked very very hard for over the years, with feasibility studies, planning, consultation’ and Fund-raising (90,000) not only by Law Community Trust Members but by many Members of the Community of Law.


The Trust has also been informed that two outside sheds behind a block of flats on Lawhill Road were also set alight on the same morning.


The Play Park and Equipment is one of the very few places that the younger Members of the Community have to Play and Enjoy.


If you have CCTV on your house and stay in or around Lawhill Road or the Play Park Area can you please review the footage during 3 am-6 am on the morning of the 19 April 2016 to possibly see if there is anything about the Mindless Vandalism on the footage. If anyone knows who has caused this vandalism please contact the Police or Law Community Trust and the Trust will pass on the information to the appropriate authorities as this fire raising needs to be stopped before someone is seriously injured or killed by this mindless person or person’s

Law in the Past

From tiny Acorns Great Oaks Grow

The Aim behind the “Trust” is to bring the Community together, to work for more employment.
To increase social opportunities and encourage visitors to Law.

Clyde and Avon Valley Landscape Partnership


Fancy some good healthy exercise while also helping manage and maintain local woodland, then why not volunteer for the new Mauldslie Woods Volunteering Team? September sees the start of a new volunteering group meeting up to get fresh air, learn new skills, make friends, have fun and get their hands dirty.


The Group will be meeting on the first Thursday of every month from 1st September onwards, at 10:15 am at Mauldslie Bridge, Rosebank.  The Group’ work will be carried out in Mauldslie Woods - nestled in the Clyde Valley between Rosebank and Garrion Bridge and containing remnants of the designed landscape of the now demolished Mauldslie Castle.


Mauldslie Woods is part of the Clyde Valley Woodlands National Nature Reserve. Scotland's oldest and richest forest lies hidden in dramatic gorges in the Clyde Valley and these ancient woodlands have clung to these gorge sides for centuries, providing a sanctuary for a wealth of wildlife. Bright with flowers in the spring, in the autumn raspberry, blackberry and brambles provide food for badgers, birds and people alike.


The volunteering work will contribute to an ongoing woodland management programme.  A typical day’ work might involve assisting with and learning skills in coppicing, rhododendron bashing, laying new path edges or building new tree enclosures to protect the parkland specimen trees. The group will finish for the day at 15:00 p.m.


Volunteers are asked to bring a packed lunch, waterproofs, lots of energy and enthusiasm. The ground will be wet and uneven so Wellie’s or sturdy boots are essential. Tools and hot drinks will be provided.


The organiser of the group, Helen Thomson of Clydesdale Community Initiatives, said "Tools are provided, but you do need to come suitably dressed for outdoor work in all weathers with a packed lunch and be prepared to get dirty.  Support and advice will be provided throughout.  It's a great help if volunteers can bring hand tools if they have some; bow saws, loppers etc.  As we will be running 8 sessions between September this year and next April, we are hoping to make a really positive impact on the woodland to improve access and also encourage wildlife and bio diversity.  Anyone interested in volunteering should register to attend with CCI by contacting colleen@cciweb.org.uk or call 01555 664211”


These volunteering sessions are supported by South Lanarkshire Council Ranger Service.  Team Leader, Mike Brady, explains: “anyone can volunteer. It doesn't matter what experience you have, what skills you have, or how much time you can commit, everyone has something to give.  This work will make a vitally important contribution to the ongoing management of Mauldslie Woods”


This project is part of the Clyde and Avon Valley Landscape Partnership (CAVLP) programme supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.  The project is one of a number of projects focusing on the conservation of woodland and designed landscapes in the local area.  Running until 2018, CAVLP have 70 different projects to conserve the built and natural heritage of the area, increase community participation and landscape connection, improve access to and learning about the landscape and heritage of the Clyde and Avon Valleys and providing new training opportunities in local heritage skills.


Programme Manager, Donna Marshall, said: “you cannot put a value on time dedicated by volunteers.  Without their sacrifice projects such as the Clyde and Avon Valley Landscape Partnership would struggle immensely. Whether it is helping to run events, carrying out research or even managing our woodland, the commitment of our volunteers is nothing short of inspirational.  By taking part in these sessions, you'll be able to meet like-minded people who care about the Clyde Valley and want to make a difference.  It is also a great way of improving your physical health and mental well-being.”


Anyone interested in getting involved should contact Clydesdale Community Initiatives on 01555 664211.
