30 YEARS AGO

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

Hall­side was set to re­ceive a cash boost from the Euro­pean Com­mu­nity, which was the first fi­nan­cial help they had been of­fered in the pre­vi­ous two years. A Ruther­glen fam­ily told of their re­lief af­ter hear­ing that rel­a­tives caught up in the Mexico City earth­quake dis­as­ter had es­caped un­hurt.

A Cathkin woman was set to take part in a jail break - but it was for a good cause as she was try­ing to com­plete a chal­lenge for char­ity.

Half­way par­ents told of their fears for their young daugh­ter as there was a gap­ing hole in their liv­ing room.

A 12-man para­chute team were ready­ing them­selves for their chal­lenge. They would jump out of a plane at 2500 feet for Ruther­glen Ma­ter­nity.
