10 YEARS AGO

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang were turned into ghost towns for the day as coun­cil work­ers staged a one day strike over pro­posed pen­sion changes, mean­ing pupils were locked out of schools and bins were un­emp­tied.

Res­i­dents in Fern­hill warned those in­volved in the re­gen­er­a­tion of the area that they wouldn’t ac­cept any more flats in the scheme.

Ruther­glen’s pub­lic toi­let in King Street was set to fi­nally open - nine months later than orig­i­nally sched­uled.

Work­ers at Ruther­glen Com­mu­nity Cen­tre were aim­ing to set up a new youth club, and they were seek­ing vol­un­teers to help them out.

King’s Park ath­lete Lee McCon­nell won a bronze medal at the Com­mon­wealth Games.
