Rutherglen Reformer - - MEMORY LANE -

A poorly pen­sioner was at the cen­tre of a black-out af­ter soot started com­ing out of her fire­place and cov­ered her room in black dust.

Chil­dren at Burn­side Pri­mary were hav­ing their lives put in dan­ger - by their own par­ents, who the school ac­cused of not tak­ing enough care or cau­tion when pick­ing up the young­sters from school.

Spec­u­la­tion was mount­ing over the‘dis­ap­pear­ance’of a teacher at Cathkin High - who the school be­lieved had gone off and joined the For­eign Le­gion.

The To­ry­glen com­mu­nity came to­gether for a meet­ing to work out how to curb the ris­ing tide of van­dal­ism in the area.

Ruther­glen Com­mu­nity Coun­cil ap­pealed for new mem­bers.
