Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

A 79-year-old widow who had es­caped death from her blaz­erid­den home three weeks pre­vi­ously was again fight­ing for her life af­ter be­ing caught in a sec­ond fire.

Ruther­glen Com­mu­nity Coun­cil mem­bers claimed that par­ents car­ried a lot of the re­spon­si­bilty for the in­creas­ing vi­o­lence in lo­cal school, and that more‘so­cial ed­u­ca­tion’was re­quired to change at­ti­tudes.

Fears that lo­cal nurs­ery schools could close with the in­tro­duc­tion of a new pre-school sub com­mit­tee were al­layed.

Work be­gan on the £1.1mil­lion old folk’s home in East Main Street six months ahead of sched­ule.

A 19-year-old Blair­beth girl man­aged to raise nearly £600 for Ruther­glen Ma­ter­nity Hos­pi­tal by com­pet­ing in a five mile fun run.
