30 YEARS AGO

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

Three blaze he­roes plunged again and again into a ten­e­ment in­ferno to pull three teenagers and a pen­sioner from a fire at a Cathkin flat.

Kind-hearted Croft­foot lo­cals raised over £700 to pay for a new ortho-ki­netic chair that would help a lo­cal young­ster.

A group of Castlemilk pen­sion­ers were living in con­stant ter­ror as they were reg­u­larly un­der siege from stone-throw­ing youths who gath­ered at the back of their houses.

Ruther­glen Com­mu­nity Coun­cil gave cau­tious agree­ment to mov­ing the Vic­to­rian band­stand at Over­toun Park.

A £3mil­lion blaze that com­pletely gut­ted the Mona Lewis ware­house on Cam­bus­lang Road was be­ing treated as sus­pi­cious by po­lice.
