30 YEARS AGO

Rutherglen Reformer - - MEMORY LANE -

A frail house­bound cou­ple were robbed of their pen­sion books and rent book by a thief who had given an‘Os­car win­ning per­for­mance’by claim­ing to be from the DHSS.

Spe­cial squads of work­men drafted into Ruther­glen to beat a mas­sive coun­cil re­pairs back­log were be­ing taken off the job, de­spite thou­sands of out­stand­ing lines.

The Ruther­glen Ma­ter­nity Para­chute Ap­peal, that aimed to raise over £10,000 for equip­ment at the hos­pi­tal, got un­der­way with a party night in Cam­bus­lang that pulled in over £1000.

A four month re­pairs de­lay had stopped a Cam­bus­lang fam­ily mov­ing into their new Cathkin home.

A new £60,000 play­park opened out­side West­burn Com­mu­nity Cen­tre.
