Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

A tear­away teenager who mowed down and killed a Croft­foot grand­mother while driv­ing a stolen car was sen­tenced to eight years in a young of­fend­ers in­sti­tu­tion and banned from driv­ing. A Whit­law­burn cou­ple wanted com­pen­sa­tion for dam­age caused when wa­ter cas­caded from an up­stairs flat into their bath­room.

Con­fu­sion over a derelict sports pav­il­lion on con­tam­i­nated ground led an East­field com­mu­nity group to re­think their plans.

A Croft­foot av­enue had be­come a mo­torists and pedes­tri­ans night­mare af­ter bol­lards were in­stalled by the dis­trict coun­cil.

Castlemilk money ad­vice cen­tre looked set to close in Septem­ber af­ter its com­mu­nity aid fund­ing ran out.
