20 YEARS AGO

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

It was re­vealed that Glas­gow’s NHS public watch­dog wanted any de­ci­sion on closing Ruther­glen Ma­ter­nity hos­pi­tal post­poned.

The last hopes for Ruther­glen com­munters of get­ting a ser­vice re­stored were dashed with the news that Queen Street sta­tion wouldn’t re-open.

Van­dals were plagu­ing Ruther­glen churches to such an ex­tent that ap­peals were made to mem­bers to catch the cul­prits, be­fore there was any more dam­age.

El­derly res­i­dents in a Burn­side shel­tered hous­ing com­plex were an­gry over the state of a nearby lane that was over­flow­ing with rub­bish.

Dis­trict coun­cil of­fi­cials had re­ceived a host of let­ters against the M74 road ex­ten­sion.
