30 YEARS AGO

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

A To­ry­glen teenager died af­ter be­ing stabbed on Glas­gow’s Sauchiehall Street af­ter try­ing to walk to hospi­tal in­stead of calling for an am­bu­lance.

Plans were drawn up for a much-needed £340,000 re­vamp of Ruther­glen Swim­ming Pool on Green­hill Road.

A shel­tered hous­ing ini­tia­tive in Ruther­glen fi­nally got the thumbs up af­ter a de­lay of six years.

A pen­sion­ers group were on the verge of be­ing forced out of their hall by van­dals who kept break­ing in and pulling off roof tiles.

The Sal­va­tion Army were launch­ing a cam­paign to raise £100,000 to­wards the build­ing of new premises in the lo­cal dis­trict.

Castlemilk res­i­dents trav­elled all the way to Lon­don to protest at the pro­posed cuts to ser­vices in the scheme.
