30 YEARS AGO

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

Plans for a mas­sive open air pop fes­ti­val in Cam­bus­lang Park were scrapped - just two days be­fore 15,000 fans were ex­pected to ar­rive to see 12 bands per­form.

A firm ran into trou­ble with their plans for a new es­tate on Burn­side Road, af­ter be­ing ac­cused of “jump­ing the gun”by start­ing build­ing with­out ob­tain­ing all the pa­per­work.

Wil­liam Hill were re­fused a li­cence to run a bet­ting shop in Ruther­glen Main Street.

Res­i­dents in Burn­side and East­field failed in their bid to have a new bus route scrapped, de­spite an out­cry and a 1200 strong pe­ti­tion de­mand­ing the route of the No 18 bus be changed.

Cam­bus­lang Un­em­ployed Worker’s Cen­tre was of­fi­cially opened by Bailie Robert McKen­zie.
