20 YEARS AGO

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

South La­nark­shire Coun­cil pledged that they would pump mil­lions of pounds into Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang, with the Town Hall, ceme­tery and both main streets set to be spot­lighted.

A de­ci­sion to close Dech­mont gun range was taken by army chiefs over it be­ing un­safe.

A taxi driver told the Re­former that he had a lucky es­cape when a fence sur­round­ing a con­struc­tion site fell down on top of his car.

South La­nark­shire Coun­cil al­lo­cated £100 to lo­cal playschemes but the fig­ure was branded pal­try by playscheme lead­ers.

A wall in Rowantree Av­enue that had been dam­aged was fi­nally set to be re­paired - six months after it had been deemed a top pri­or­ity by Glas­gow City Coun­cil.
