20 YEARS AGO

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

A Cam­bus­lang mum scooped one of Bri­tain’s big­gest bingo wins when she called house on a £75,000 na­tion­wide game.

Strict polic­ing and con­tin­ued lo­cal vigliance seemed to have stopped the prob­lem of van­dal­ism at Burn­side’s Calder­wood Road shops.

Con­tro­ver­sial plans for an amuse­ment ar­cade on Main Street, that had been op­posed by the com­mu­nity coun­cil and coun­cil­lors, were set for a public in­quiry.

Lo­cal coun­cil­lors called for the re­turn of old style park keep­ers to help parks in the area be bet­ter looked af­ter.

Un­cer­tainty con­tin­ued to hang over the fu­ture of To­ry­glen parks, a year af­ter the re­gional coun­cil pulled back from closing them.
