30 YEARS AGO

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

Mob vi­o­lence was spilling over from the streets into the school play­grounds of Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang , with a level of vi­o­lence that had reached “in­tol­er­a­ble”pro­por­tions.

Ten­ants us­ing por­ta­ble gas fires in cer­tain multi-storey flats in Cam­bus­lang were en­dan­ger­ing their own lives and“count­less” oth­ers.

The spare ground be­tween Fern­hill Road and Tor­musk Road was one of three sites be­ing con­sid­ered for a new pub in Castlemilk.

A mas­sive demon­stra­tion was be­ing or­gan­ised to protest at the ar­rival of the D.H.S.S’s so-called “su­per snoop­ers”in Ruther­glen.

Four lo­cal pri­mary schools were closed for three days as part of the lat­est ac­tion in a na­tion­wide strike dis­pute.
