20 YEARS AGO

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

A young Half­way mum had put her son un­der house ar­rest un­til her gar­den was fenced off, be­cause she was ter­ri­fied that he would be killed on a busy road nearby.

The coun­cil said they would not fund the co­or­di­na­tor’s jobs at four lo­cal halls in a bid to save cash - and it was claimed pres­sure was be­ing put on to sack them in­stead.

The Cam­bus­lang cam­paign to save their crown post of­fice won a vic­tory when they passed a res­o­lu­tion to boy­cott the new fran­chised branch.

The dad of a Ruther­glen school­girl who was sub­jected to a hor­ri­fy­ing at­tack by a Cam­bus­lang man, vowed not to rest un­til he “got”the beast when he was re­leased from jail.

Fern­hill res­i­dents hailed plans to move a taxi rank in the scheme.
