Dis­trict coun­cil­lors gave the thumbs-up to a £7.7mil­lion geri­atric hos­pi­tal in Ruther­glen, which was set to open in 1987.

Cam­bus­lang res­i­dents were up in arms over plans to turn dis­used of­fices in Croft Road into an Or­ange Hall, fear­ing the build­ing would be used for flute band prac­tices.

Jobs in dan­ger of be­ing axed at Cam­bus­lang Fire Sta­tion were saved.

A To­ry­glen drama teacher was act­ing up as she pre­pared to maker her de­but with two one woman mono­logues at the Ed­in­burgh Fes­ti­val Fringe.
