30 YEARS AGO

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

Vil­lagers in Hall­side were plan­ning a spe­cial Christ­mas present for their land­lord - a rent strike over their homes not be­ing up to stan­dard.

A Cam­bus­lang fam­ily had been liv­ing for two months with­out a hot wa­ter sup­ply in their East­field home be­cause of coun­cil bun­gles.

A Whit­law­burn woman’s house was com­pletely ru­ined after a sewage pipe burst, send­ing the con­tents up through the floor­boards and plumb­ing sys­tems into her home.

Cam­bus­lang Hous­ing Depart­ment pulled out all the stops to make sure that a home­less Ruther­glen cou­ple had some­where to stay over Christ­mas.

Galts florist shop on Farmeloan Road re­opened its main shop after six months away.
