30 YEARS AGO

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

An armed raider picked the wrong tar­get when he went af­ter a pub owner - as the pub­li­can went af­ter the rob­ber in a high-speed car chase.

The bat­tle to save Shaw­field Sta­dium from the bull­doz­ers stepped up a gear af­ter a 6000-sig­na­ture pe­ti­tion was handed over, protest­ing at the de­ci­sion.

Cam­bus­lang’s Wool­worths store was set to close in July be­cause it “did not fall into line with the com­pany im­age”.

The Cathkin Ju­nior club that played host to around 150 chil­dren each week was forced to close, due to a lack of adult vol­un­teers. There was a kind-hearted re­ac­tion from lo­cals to an ap­peal for a body brace for a brave Fern­hill young­ster in­jured in a road ac­ci­dent.
