Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

Anger erupted in Cam­bus­lang over the tim­ing of a cru­cial public in­quiry too de­cide the fu­ture of Mor­ri­son Park, one of the few green ar­eas left in the town, as it was set to take place dur­ing the Glas­gow fair hol­i­day fort­night.

Two teenage broth­ers who set fire to a Ruther­glen firm were stand­ing watch­ing it burn as the po­lice and fire brigade ar­rived, a court heard.

Plans con­tin­ued for a new BMX track in Ruther­glen which would let young bik­ers ride around in safety.

Res­i­dents in East­field re­cruited the help of two lo­cal coun­cil­lors as the row over week­end bus ser­vices be­ing with­drawn con­tin­ued.

Bankhead res­i­dents hit out over the fact a lo­cal bus ser­vice was chang­ing its route nearly ev­ery day.
