Land rights campaigner Andy Wightman will be speaking on the Common Good assets of former Burghs such as Biggar, how and how to find out what these are and ensure that they are used to benefit local communities. SLC says Biggar has no Common Good Assets we believe that it does as the Public Park and the Burnbraes as well as some other sites would seem to meet the criteria.

HONEY: its composition and properties, its harvesting and processing.
Alan Riach’s excellent illustrated lecture on everything about honey is a must for beekeepers. And if you’re not a beekeeper but just want to find out more about this amazing food, you won’t have a better opportunity to find out all about it.
Janet Moxley, Green Party candidate for Clydesdale East, in the forthcoming council elections is calling for South Lanarkshire council to use small scale renewables to cut fuel bills from its own properties and help householders do likewise.
Janet supports the "reduce, reuse, recycle" approach to managing waste
Greens say that the council needs to step up its game to cut waste and boost recycling in order to protect communities, create jobs and save money.
John Young from the Dovesdale Action Campaign states that some councillors are misleading constituents stating that South Lanarkshire Council will not be burning waste at the Dovesdale incinerator they approved February 2011. They have also stated the waste will be burned at Runcorn and that they will not be sending their waste to Dovesdale. The truth is in what they don’t say.
Clydesdale needs a high quality public transport network not just for local people to use, but also to allow people to visit and enjoy the area.
The Green Economy provides a variety of new job opportunities. These include eco-tourism, local food production, building insulation and production and installation of micro- and larger scale renewables.
Renewables can provide clean energy and reduce our dependence on fossil fuels, however Janet recognises that they raise complex issues and need to be carefully sited.
