The Wishaw Press have kicked off a fan­tas­tic fea­ture to find our read­ers’digital pic­ture of the week.

We have teamed up with Mor­risons in Kirk Road who will pro­vide a FREE fam­ily meal for four (two adults and two children) at their cafe for ev­ery read­ers’digital pic­ture of the week that we print in our news­pa­per.

It can be pho­to­graph, selfie or im­age that you or your children have taken on a digital cam­era, iPad, or smart­phone.

We are look­ing for ei­ther a pic­ture that you have taken in the Wishaw area or per­haps a selfie of your fam­ily while you were on hol­i­day at home or abroad, or children’s draw­ing on an iPad.

We would also like pic­tures of your spe­cial oc­ca­sions, such as wed­ding an­niver­saries, children’s birth­day par­ties, re­tire­ments dos, fam­ily cel­e­bra­tions, party pic­tures, club or group pic­tures, or any other big day or char­ity event.

All you have do is send your pic­ture to us at news@ wishaw­ or con­tact us through our Face­book and Twit­ter pages.

Please make sure you in­clude your name, ad­dress and con­tact de­tails and in­for­ma­tion about your pic­ture.

The rough state of North La­nark­shire’s roads net­work was last week re­vealed in star­tling new fig­ures. The stats, ob­tained by the Wishaw Press, showed that in the last fi­nan­cial year, the coun­cil splashed out £472,000 on patch­ing the 2,401 pot­holes re­ported to them by the public.

The roads are a damn dis­grace and when they do fill them all they do is a shoddy patch job with­out even seal­ing it.There­fore the cy­cle con­tin­ues. Carol McDon­ald They (the coun­cil) are too busy wast­ing money putting traf­fic calm­ing mea­sures in when re­al­is­ti­cally the pot holes are bad enough to stop peo­ple speed­ing.

Who MOTs the roads to make sure they are fit to drive on? Scott Mcleod

Our front page story last week fea­tur­ing Wishaw man Stephen Rielly, who bravely waived his right to anonymity to speak over the hor­rific sex­ual abuse he suf­fered, saw an out­pour­ing of sup­port on our so­cial media sites. Stephen spoke to us af­ter his abuser, evil James Kin­nien, was jailed for eight years.

Stephen well done on speak­ing out.

It just shows it’s never too late to come for­ward. Christine McGeechan
