Online insight into the life of Lanarkshire’s Lord Lieutenant

A new website has been launched in conjunction with local school pupils to capture the activity of Lanarkshire’s Lord Lieutenant.

Pupils from Dalziel High School and Uddingston Grammar at North and South Lanarkshire Councils have come together to assist in the development of the online project which will provide an insight into the exciting work of the Lord Lieutenant of Lanarkshire, Lady Haughey (Susan) CBE.

As part of the project, pupils will develop essential work skills in IT, web development and copy writing.

The website, at, features an overview of the history of the Lord Lieutenant’s office, including an interactive map of the area the Lanarkshire Lieutenancy covers.

There is also a news section with details of the events the Lord Lieutenant and her Deputies have recently been involved in. Additional features include information on nominations for awards and significant milestones such as diamond wedding anniversaries and 100th birthdays.

There is also information on the nomination process for Honours, the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service and the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise.

Lord Lieutenant of Lanarkshire, Lady Haughey (Susan) CBE, said: “I was delighted to meet the pupils today and to formally launch the website.

“I hope people find it a useful way of getting to know more about what the Lieutenancy for Lanarkshire does in the area.

“I would like to thank the pupils, teachers and staff from both councils for all their hard work and dedication in helping prepare the website.”

“The involvement of schools in this project is a good example of our commitment to engage with all schools in Lanarkshire and builds on the links recently established with a number of schools who have attended Citizenship Ceremonies hosted by both North and South Lanarkshire Councils.”

Mr Jim Divers, computer science teacher at Uddingston Grammar , said, “This is a fantastic opportunity for pupils to get involved in a real project that provides interesting information about the work of Lanarkshire’s Lord Lieutenant, whilst gaining practical skills that will help set them up for further training.”
