  • Evening Times 11 April 2011-Memorial hall rescued by £5m restoration plan Stef Lach 11 Apr 2011 A £5million restoration plan will breathe new life into a town’s memorial hall. Work will see the restoration, refurbishment and an extension built at Lanark Memorial Hall. Mansell Construction Services Ltd is working on the Grade B listed building on behalf of South Lanarkshire Council. The building has been unused since October 2008 when it closed. The money was raised by the council with contributions from the Heritage Lottery Fund and Historic Scotland. The hall was built in 1926 in memory of the 232 local men who lost their lives in the First World War. The project will involve members of the community and schoolchildren in researching and developing a timeline and electronic display of information on local heritage. Colin McLean, head of the Heritage Lottery Fund in Scotland, said: “This grand old hall has served the community well for over 90 years. “It is interwoven with the history and cultural traditions of the town. “These works will repair and transform it into a contemporary facility so that it can continue to involve, delight, educate and entertain people for many years to come.” Councillor Hamish Stewart said: “This marvellous facility will give Lanark an excellent arts venue to accommodate the cultural life of the town and the surrounding area.”
