20 YEARS AGO

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

South La­nark­shire Coun­cil said they would be re-open­ing the dis­trict court­house in Ruther­glen.

Over 70 Cam­bus­lang res­i­dents protested out­side the Post Of­fice Counter Ltd’s Glas­gow of­fice against the clo­sure of the town’s main branch.

De­tec­tives were hunt­ing an armed rob­ber who burst into a petrol sta­tion on Cam­bus­lang’s Bridge Street and stole a sub­stan­tial amount of money.

A Cam­bus­lang man was sacked from his job as a mem­ber of a sur­vey­ing team for let­ting his work­mate do the toi­let in a man­hole.

Res­i­dents of Ruther­glen’s Duchess Road were fu­ri­ous af­ter a snack bar’s li­cence was re­newed de­spite pleas to move it nearer the in­dus­trial es­tate.
