The history and future landscape in and around the conservation village of Rosebank will be the focus for the Clyde and Avon Valley Landscape Partnership (CAVLP) tour as it visits on Saturday 13th April. Local people are invited to drop in at the Flowers of Scotland Garden Centre between 10am and 12noon and there will be free hands on activities for children.

Staff from CAVLP will be keen to hear what features of the local natural and cultural heritage villagers feel are worth conserving, enhancing or celebrating. Then CAVLP will work with local people to turn these ideas into reality over the next three years. This may be new information on local historic features, improvements to walks around the village or capturing the memories of older villagers. Visitors will also be able to find out more about volunteering or learning new skills for employment or pleasure related to the local or natural cultural heritage.

Two other groups will be joining the Rosebank event: Ashgill and Netherburn community council will be asking local people to comment on plans to improve Rosebank Park and Lanark and District Archaeological Society will be on hand with old maps of the area so people can see what the place looked like in the past.

Kathleen Caulfield, chairperson for the community council, said, “We have secured some funding to improve Rosebank park and look forward to speaking to local people about progress to date. In particular, we would like feedback on the play equipment wanted and if any other local people would like to be involved in the project. Last year, we also took part in a local archaeological dig so we would encourage everyone to come along and see what the CAVLP can offer the Rosebank area.”
