20 YEARS AGO

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

A ter­ri­fied Ruther­glen woman told the Re­former how she had bravely fought off a masked man who she be­lieved was go­ing to rape her near New­ton train sta­tion.

The toxic tip next to Ruther­glen’s health cen­tre and ma­ter­nity hos­pi­tal was not go­ing to be moved, de­spite grow­ing fears from the public, as com­mu­nity health of­fi­cials and en­vi­ron­men­tal ex­perts claimed it wasn’t harm­ful.

A Castlemilk back court was in­fested with wa­ter rats that were scur­ry­ing through knee high grass and pre­vented chil­dren from play­ing there.

Fern­hill lo­cals were urged to ex­pose the hooli­gans and van­dals ru­in­ing the com­mu­nity there.

Cops warned of a rise in bi­cy­cle thefts.
