30 YEARS AGO

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

A lo­cal man got more than he bar­gained for when he bit into a pie he’d bought - and dis­cov­ered there was a dead mouse inside!

Glas­gow City Coun­cil put up an ex­tra £556,000 for a hous­ing re­pairs project in Cam­bus­lang, mean­ing work on 310 houses could go ahead.

A leaky roof was caus­ing misery for two Cam­bus­lang neigh­bours as rain would not only fall out­side, but also right into the kitchens.

A Cam­bus­lang brother and sis­ter who had been liv­ing in a coun­cil house with­out a sin­gle item of fur­ni­ture were told by the DHSS that they could not help them.

Con­tro­ver­sial plans by Wim­pey to turn West Green­lees Farm in Cam­bus­lang into a hous­ing estate were fi­nally re­jected by the Sec­re­tary of State for Scot­land.
