20 YEARS AGO

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

Lo­cal Lib­eral Democrats had set up an ac­tion group to press for de­volved power in Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang un­der the new South La­nark­shire set-up.

A Ruther­glen man was all set to take on Glas­gow City Coun­cil after they re­fused him fi­nan­cial help to re­dec­o­rate his house, after he claimed coun­cil work­men had dam­aged it.

The own­ers of a badly van­dalised build­ing sealed the for­mer shop up but ques­tions still re­mained over its long-term fu­ture.

Cable tele­vi­sion had come to Ruther­glen - and with it some irate com­plaints from house-hold­ers angry over their pave­ment be­ing dug up.

A chip-fan fire left a young Ruther­glen fam­ily home­less.
