New Members Welcome

If you want to see Law Village improve, why not be part of Law Community Trust, come along and make your views heard and be part of the future of Law Village!

The next event for Law Community Trust will be the Lighting Up Law @ Christmas Event on 23 November 2018.

We look forward to seeing you there. Thank you all for your continued support for Law Community Trust.

The next meeting of Law Community Trust is on the 10 December 2018 in the Tom Craig Centre 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

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 Bucket Swing has been set on fire again (2018) and South Lanarkshire Council may not replace it!

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!

Work on the new play park equipment is completed.

It seems the children have unofficially opened the play park Friday 23rd April 2010.  There has been great enjoyment in the Law Play Park since Friday (all age groups).

Congratulations and thanks to each and everyone of you for helping to steer the Play Park Project to a successful conclusion.
Jim Wright (Chairman).

Law in the Past

From tiny Acorns Great Oaks Grow
A small group of people in Law decided to take the old saying at its word by setting up Law Community Trust in April 1999.

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.

Membership is open to: All residents, organisation’s and businesses based within Law.

Thank you to everyone who continues to support us in any way.

Please feel free to visit Clydesdale Food Bank

any day Monday to Friday between 10.00am and noon.

Please hand in your kind Donations to: Scot-Mid Ltd,

51-53 Station Road, Law, or

Clydesdale Food Bank, 66 High Street, Carluke.

Some of you kind folks have asked about doing a Reverse Advent Calendar for us this year.

So find a box (or a bag) and during November add an item each day

(or every couple of days).

The list shown is of the items which will go into our special Christmas hampers but of course we will continue to provide our usual food packs as well so if you want to add any other dried or tinned foods, toiletries etc. that would be fantastic.

We will add some fresh produce to the hampers before they are delivered too.

It would be very helpful if you could drop these boxes off to us at the start of December so that our hampers can be delivered in good time for Christmas.

10/11/2018 Memorial Garden Vandalism

Man’s inhumanity to man carries on regardless. This is the newly re-landscaped village war memorial, the day before Remembrance Day.

A lot of the good members of the community have come out this morning to fix the despicable actions of a few of our community.

The council have also had to spend even more money now. This is the only positive spin on what otherwise provokes so many different negative emotions…
