Lesmahagow Farmers' Society produces the Lesmahagow Annual Show which is a long established and well supported event. The aim of the show is to present the skills of the local people both in agriculture through livestock showing, sheep shearing, sheep dog trials but also in crafts, home baking, etc. The show is very committed to involving all villagers of Lesmahagow and surrounding areas, especially children, by incorporating many fun but also educational activities for the youngsters.
The website includes details of the Show, a history of the Society and a photogallery taken at previous shows. The website went live in April 2009.

The Clydesdale International and Shires Today is a quarterly magazine for Clydesdale and Shire Horse breeders, exhibitors and enthusiasts worldwide. It is edited and published by John Zawadazki of Lesmahagow, Scotland. The website provides contact details, contents of the current issue and links to websites of interest to enthusiasts of these gentle giants.
The website was transferred from its previous location at www.clydehorses.co.uk to www.clydeshire.co.uk in February 2011, at which time the site was improved. Links to the magazine's Facebook and Flickr pages were incorporated. Updated September 2011 to allow payment of subscriptions by credit card/debit card through Paypal. In June 2015, the site was converted to a responsive design to allow use on mobile phones and tablets.
This website is now on hold following the serious illness of John Zawadzki.
A website for the twinned congregations of Coalburn Parish Church and Lesmahagow Old Parish Church. It gives details of their aims and worship, the activities for all age groups and how to contact them. The site went live on the 22nd September 2013.
It replaces a previous website and was particularly set up to provide information for prospective ministers as the churches have been without a minister for some time.
A website for Robert M. Boyd, Joiners and Builders, of Coalburn. It features a photogallery of some of the impressive results they have achieved in wood. This gallery works with Slimbox, a lightweight Visual Lightbox clone. The site went live in December 2013.
Their previous website ran into problems when the previous designers went out of business and were uncontactable leaving Boyds with no access to their website or webspace. The hosting company would not release details of accessing the control panel.Fortunately, it was possible to transfer their domain to Calico and a new website was uploaded to their webspace on Calico. They now have details of access to their webspace so they can pass them on if it proves necessary.
