10 YEARS AGO

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

Ruther­glen was dealt a mas­sive jobs blow with the news that Rich­mond Park Laun­dry was to move the re­main­der of its busi­ness to Pais­ley, leav­ing the build­ing empty by the end of Au­gust.

Work­ers at Grampian Foods in Cam­bus­lang were left fu­ri­ous af­ter the com­pany ap­par­ently re­neged on an agree­ment to ex­tend the dead­line to sign up for the new pen­sion scheme.

Vi­o­lence erupted onto the streets of Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang as five peo­ple were at­tacked in the space of only three days.

De­vel­op­ers be­hind plans to build the multi-mil­lion pound Ruther­glen Park were pre­par­ing to present de­tailed plans to South La­nark­shire Coun­cil.

A young Ruther­glen pup took top prize at a dog show.
