Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

Kings­bridge Drive res­i­dents were out in force to vent their anger at the first bus to drive down the street in a month af­ter they were promised the route would be scrapped.

Com­plaints about win­dows leak­ing in 43 houses in the Light­burn area of Cam­bus­lang flooded into the coun­cil.

An il­le­gal mar­ket was found to be run­ning in the for­mer Ruther­glen Co-op build­ing, for the sec­ond time in as many months.

Ruther­glen’s se­nior cit­i­zens ac­tion group slammed the gov­ern­ment’s 40p rise in pen­sion lev­els, brand­ing it“in­sult­ing”.

More than 190 houses in Cairns were due to be in­cluded in a £8.3mil­lion mod­erni­sa­tion pro­gramme, up­dat­ing homes which had cor­ro­sion of metal rods in them.
