Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

A court had heard how a part time sol­dier charmed a 16 year old in a Ruther­glen pub then trie d to rape her on waste ground in King Street.

Roads of­fi­cials were to meet To­ry­glen res­i­dents in a bid to solve the prob­lem of a dan­ger­ous street cor­ner, with one lo­cal say­ing cars had twice come off the cor­ner and into his front gar­den as a re­sult of the road.

Trom­bone player Colin Reid from Ruther­glen was ac­cepted for an ad­vanced course at the Royal Academy of Mu­sic, but didn’t have the cash to pay for his course.

A out­door sports com­plex linked to Burn­hill Sports Cen­tre took a step nearer re­al­ity, as it was ready for Ur­ban Aid fi­nanc­ing.

Seven­teen-year-old Mark Car­roll was named as Fern­hill’s young ci­ti­zen of the year.
