A ma­jor new ini­tia­tive aimed at im­prov­ing the trans­port links be­tween Ruther­glen, Cam­bus­lang and hos­pi­tals in Glas­gow was un­veiled, but cam­paign­ers in­sisted that only a new lo­cal hos­pi­tal would suf­fice.

Stonelaw High pupils did their best to in­flate Chil­dren In Need’s bank bal­ance, by hold­ing a bal­loon race for char­ity.
