30 YEARS AGO

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

A Ruther­glen fam­ily launched an ap­peal to find the funds needed to send their paral­ysed daugh­ter to Amer­ica for spe­cial treat­ment.

A Ruther­glen roof­ing worker trag­i­cally died af­ter fall­ing from a four storey build­ing in Glas­gow Road.

Ruther­glen’s old em­ploy­ment ex­change was to be used to cre­ate jobs by be­ing con­verted into shops and of­fices.

A ma­jor new sport­ing ini­tia­tive was an­nounced for the streets of Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang in the shape of a 10-mile road race.

It was claimed that con­ges­tion and in­creased park­ing would be the di­rect re­sult of build­ing a new geri­atric hos­pi­tal in Stonelaw Road.

Glen­marnock cy­clist Martin Coll be­came the first Scot in 15 years to win the Gir­van in­ter­na­tional race.
