10 YEARS AGO

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

A court heard how the dy­ing words of a stabbed man helped con­vict his girl­friend of the mur­der.

Cathkin res­i­dents took to the streets to ex­press their anger at los­ing their com­mu­nity hall, as they claimed that South La­nark­shire Coun­cil had‘be­trayed’ their in­ter­ests.

Users of Ruther­glen Com­mu­nity Cen­tre were told that there was to be no re­place­ment fa­cil­ity pro­vided when the cur­rent build­ing was pulled down, news that would mean the end of the pop­u­lar com­mu­nity cafe too.

Res­i­dents of Dean Park Drive in Half­way were an­gry over a huge hole in their street caused by work on the site.

A Ruther­glen coun­cil­lor called for the pro­posed con­ser­va­tion area in the Burgh to be ex­tended.
