Across Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang com­mu­nity coun­cils are start­ing back af­ter their sum­mer re­cess.

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”
