30 YEARS AGO

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

The streets of Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang were paved with gold - lit­er­ally - af­ter a Se­curi­cor van go­ing through the area dropped eight bags of coins out of it as it drove through the area.

Ruther­glen Hous­ing As­so­ci­a­tion was“in­un­dated”with ap­pli­ca­tions for 31 flats that had just be­come avail­able in the area.

A kind-hearted Cam­bus­lang woman man­aged to raise £500 in a four week cam­paign against cere­vi­cal can­cer, with the cash go­ing to­wards Glas­gow’s Royal In­fir­mary.

The former Em­pire Cin­ema in Cam­bus­lang, which had be­come a haven for glue snif­fers, was to be de­mol­ished.

Over £1000 was des­per­ately needed by the Cam­bus­lang YMCA to re­pair their sports pav­il­ion af­ter flood­ing dam­aged it.
