10 YEARS AGO

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

A Whit­law­burn woman who was adopted at the age of five was hop­ing for a very spe­cial birth­day sur­prise - by find­ing her bi­o­log­i­cal fam­ily.

Fire­fight­ers bat­tled to save 11 peo­ple trapped in a block of flats in Green­hill Street, even­tu­ally pulling them all to safety af­ter a couch left in the close was de­lib­er­ately set alight.

A Ruther­glen woman was hop­ing to hit the heights to raise money for Parkin­son’s Dis­ease, by tak­ing part in a para­chute jump.

Res­i­dents of a Burn­side street af­fected by flood­ing started a cam­paign for their street to be in­cluded in a lo­cal study of the prob­lem.

More road­works mis­ery was on the way for mo­torists en­ter­ing the M74 at Cam­bus­lang, as a stretch of car­riage­way was re­con­structed.
