First of all a big thank you, goes to: Forward Scotland and to the Renewable Energy Foundation organisers for believing in and supporting our project.

Law Community Trust would also like to thank the Community and Business’s of Law for their continued support in campaigning for the New Law Play Park improvements, including the Mothers and Toddlers Group, Law Parent and Teachers Association.

We would also like to thank South Lanarkshire Council’s Funding Advisory Team especially Mr Kenny Lean for his efforts on our behalf, also the Community Resources Team for all their efforts and co-operation in the design and development of the proposals.

Finally, we will be eternally grateful to Penny and Wendy of

PMR Leisure Ltd, Jupiter Play and Leisure Ltd (Simon Kelly) without their help and expertise the New Play Park Project would never have got of the ground.

Following two years of hard work included public meetings, public exhibitions plus extensive consultations with the Community of Law, especially Primary Six and Seven School Children at Law Primary School.

Law Community Trust are pleased to announce that they have been successful in obtaining funding from Forward Scotland 30,000. The Renewable Energy Foundation 30,000 and South Lanarkshire Council, 17,500 (in kind) for the total replacement of the Play Park Equipment in the Play Park, Lawhill Road.

60,000 of the funding is for New Play Park Equipment; the rest is for the upgrading and enlargement of the existing car park plus the removal of existing equipment and the reinstatement of the Play Park Land.

South Lanarkshire Council Community Resources will be project managers, reporting to the Committee of Law Community Trust.

Once complete, the Play Park will be managed and maintained by South Lanarkshire Council’s Community Resources.

Tendering for the equipment will commence almost immediately and it may be possible the installation of the first pieces of New Play Park Equipment will begin by Easter 2010.

Law Community Trust will continue to seek additional funding for another two/three Play Equipment Units for the Play Park.

Law Community Trust’s environment improvement project In association with Clydesdale Community Initiatives

Law Community Trust has recently been given funding for carrying out a series of environmental improvement works around the village. This work will be carried out by Lanark based Clydesdale Community Initiatives.

They will be starting in the village by the 22nd June 2009. The works they will be undertaking include planting beds, walling and bench's at the entry to Muir Street, enhancement of the
Law Primary School frontage, wooden planters and bulb planting to the  entries of the village. Two new Community bench's installed at Law Primary School. (Completed)

Clydesdale Community Initiatives, was set-up in 2002 to enable young people who are at risk and adults with mental health  issue’s, to develop a derelict site in Lanark, South Lanarkshire.

This project was so successful, with both groups benefiting hugely from their involvement, that it was decided to undertake  further projects. With their dedicated staff of experienced trainers they helped local Communities create attractive areas in the  places they live.

Law Community Trust would like to thank the following organisation’s for the funding and support towards the Law environmental project

Before and After Photographs of the Restoration of Law War Memorial

"During August and September 2015 the Law War Memorial received much needed conservation and repair works thanks to a 1400 grant from Centenary Memorials Restoration Fund managed by War Memorials Trust on behalf of Historic Environment Scotland and the Scottish Government and over 400 from the Law Community Trust reserves.

The work was carried out tastefully by a team of craftsmen from Stewarton Memorials in Netherton and included repair of a hairline crack, general re-pointing and cleaning, replacement of missing and badly damaged lettering, repainting of all lettering plus the reconstruction of the base cobble stones.

Law Community Trust are grateful to War Memorials Trust for their advice and help with this important project and would also like to thank Mr Danny Maxwell of South Lanarkshire Council for his much valued contribution to the project"
