20 YEARS AGO

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

There was anger af­ter South La­nark­shire Coun­cil ditched plans to re­store Ruther­glen Town Hall to its for­mer glory, in­stead say­ing that it was“not fea­si­ble”to carry out the work re­quired.

A bo­gus work­man who had fright­ened two pen­sion­ers into giv­ing him thou­sands of pounds was jailed for a year.

A group of To­ry­glen fam­i­lies claimed they were liv­ing in‘third world’con­di­tions, thanks to teenage thugs who kept flood­ing the area by set­ting off fire hy­drants.

Dis­trict coun­cil­lors gave the go-ahead for a lux­ury 91 home de­vel­op­ment at Hall­side.

Res­i­dents of Cly­de­ford Road and Monkcas­tle Drive in Cam­bus­lang hit out over the area look­ing like a‘rub­bish tip’.
