Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

A re­gional coun­cil­lor in Ruther­glen was cleared of fraud charges in court against the Clyde Pu­rifi­ca­tion Board.

There had been a mis­er­able Christ­mas for hun­dreds of Ru­glo­ni­ans, thanks to scrooge tac­tics be­ing em­ployed by Post Of­fice bosses, as an over­time row led to a strike be­ing called and more than 500 giros not be­ing de­liv­ered.

A fed-up Fern­hill cou­ple waited for 10 weeks to get flood­ing dam­age in their house re­paired, despite con­stant prom­ises by Ruther­glen Hous­ing Depart­ment that they would get it done.

An £11,000 grant was ap­proved for a new respite care home in Castlemilk.

A tal­ented Cam­bus­lang Har­ri­ers run­ner romped to an easy win in the Irvine boys’ju­nior cross coun­try race.
