Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Staff re­porter

The an­nual gen­eral meet­ing of Ruther­glen Her­itage So­ci­ety will be held in Ruther­glen Li­brary later this month.

The meet­ing will take place on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 27, at 6pm.

Ruther­glen Her­itage So­ci­ety has been in­volved in a project to iden­tify and record the re­main­ing bound­ary, or “march”, stones in Ruther­glen.

The stones were orig­i­nally erected round the Roy­alty bound­ary of the Burgh to mark the ter­ri­tory and main­tain its iden­tity.

Last year, the so­ci­ety erected a stone in Glas­gow Road be­side the M74 mo­tor­way, to re­place a stone which had dis­ap­peared dur­ing the mo­tor­way con­struc­tion.

A re­port of the progress made and plans for the fu­ture projects of the stones and other her­itage projects will be dis­cussed at the an­nual gen­eral meet­ing.

The meet­ing is open to all who are in­ter­ested in pre­serv­ing Ruther­glen’s her­itage.
