Comm council dates
Return of groups
Across Rutherglen and Cambuslang community councils are starting back after their summer recess.
Community councils are voluntary organisations set up by statute and run by local residents to act on behalf of their area.
The next meeting of Rutherglen Community Council will take place on Tuesday, September 8 at the Tower Room at Rutherglen Town Hall, located on Rutherglen Main Street.
The next meeting of Burnside Community Council has been scheduled and will take place tonight (Wednesday, September 2) at Rutherglen Tennis Club on Viewpark Drive.
The next meeting of Halfwayl will take place on Wednesday, September 16.
It takes place at Park View Primary School on New Road, Halfway.
The next meeting of Cambuslang Community Council will take place on Tuesday, September 15 at the Cambuslang institute on Greenlees Road.
All the meetings start at 7.30pm except Halfway which is 7pm.
Chair of Rutherglen Commu n i t y council Tommy Rooney said the group always strive to help residents with any issues: “We represent the whole area. The elected councillors represented certain areas such as Rutherglen north or Rutherglen south. However we represent the whole area up to Burnside. I’m from Farmecross, but I feel it’s as much of my duty to represent Eastfield or the Main Street.
“If anyone has a problem I would encourage them to come along and if we can help them we will. Anyone is welcome”
