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@ wishawpress.co.uk 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. Stuart Morton You need an MOT to make sure your cars fit for the road.
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
