A 50th an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tion for Law and District Ath­let­ics Club was a run­away suc­cess.

Held at the John Cumming Sta­dium in Car­luke, ath­letes from across North La­nark­shire en­joyed a day of ath­let­ics and en­ter­tain­ment.

A to­tal of 150 ath­letes picked up medals for their par­tic­i­pa­tion with tiny tots run­ning too.

The young­sters com­peted in the 100m, 400m or 600m, shot put and long jump and had the back­ing track thanks to a DJ who kept ev­ery­one en­ter­tained with run­ning com­men­tary and top tunes.

Les­ley McNi­col, from Law and District Ath­let­ics Club, said:“We were ex­tremely for­tu­nate to re­ceive a grant of £3300 from the Big Lot­tery Cel­e­brate Fund and used this money to pro­vide ev­ery­one with a goodie bag of a t-shirt, cap, wa­ter, snack and draw string bag.

“Tea and cof­fee was pro­vided free of charge all day and the 200 at­ten­dees – be­tween ath­letes, of­fi­cials, vol­un­teers and par­ents – all had a splen­did day!”

The cel­e­bra­tions will con­tinue at the club next month with a for­mal event at the New La­nark Mill Ho­tel with past and present mem­bers shar­ing their memories of the club.
