10 YEARS AGO

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

It was feared that around 138 jobs could be lost at the Burn­side Safe­way store, af­ter the chain was bought over by Mor­ri­son’s, who an­nounced they were look­ing to sell it to another firm.

The bat­tle to choose the Labour can­di­date for the next Scot­tish Par­lia­men­tary elec­tion looked to be over, with lo­cal party chair­man James Kelly set to get the nod to suc­ceed Ja­nis Hughes.

Plans for a new com­mu­nity ra­dio sta­tion for the Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang area were dis­cussed at a meet­ing.

There was drama at Blair­beth Golf Club when a he­li­copter was called to res­cue a man who col­lapsed on the fifth fair­way.

De­voted Cam­bus­lang carer Iso­bel Allan was pre­sented with an MBE to thank her for her in­cred­i­ble work over the year.
