40 YEARS AGO

East Kilbride News - - MEMORY LANE -

A party of 40 staff from the min­istry of over­seas de­vel­op­ment faced a chal­leng­ing three-day assess­ment of East Kilbride.

They ar­rived to in­spect the fa­cil­i­ties the town and its im­me­di­ate en­vi­rons had to of­fer in prepa­ra­tion for the move of the new min­istry to a com­plex within the new town.

There was set to be a fes­ti­val of mu­sic in East Kilbride. La­nark­shire Mu­sic Fes­ti­val was due to come to the new town for the first time and run in the theatre at Clare­mont High School.

East Kilbride His­tory and Amenity So­ci­ety held its last pub­lic lec­ture of the sea­son.

But the group was set to start a drive to re­cruit new mem­bers at the start of the next sea­son.
