East Kilbride News - - MEMORY LANE -

East Kil­bride re­ceived a jobs boost when the Lind­say­field Safe­way store opened its doors to the public. A to­tal of 230 jobs were cre­ated at the new su­per­mar­ket which was set to be of­fi­cially opened by Adam In­gram MP.

East Kil­bride came to a stand­still dur­ing the fu­neral of Diana Princess of Wales. The town cen­tre, nor­mally bustling on a Satur­day morn­ing with shop­pers, was de­serted as res­i­dents watched the peo­ple’s princess be­ing laid to rest. Shops, leisure cen­tres and the town’s cin­ema re­mained closed.
