Our week on so­cial me­dia

Rutherglen Reformer - - Reformer View -

There was shock on our so­cial me­dia sites last week when we re­vealed Greggs were set to shed jobs at their Cam­bus­lang bak­ery. Here’s what you had to say: “Fifty jobs to go yet they’re ex­pand­ing and adding on to the build­ing. I thought they’d be tak­ing peo­ple on. Strange.”- Robert Colquhoun

“Strange one, you go into Greggs and it’s al­ways mobbed. You would think they were in a po­si­tion to cre­ate more jobs rather than take them away.”- Malky McWhirter

“I’ve been in Greggs a cou­ple of times this week and the shelves of cakes were empty.”- Chris­tine Boyd

“A lot of my friends post stuff about sup­port­ing lo­cal busi­nesses es­pe­cially bak­ers. They of­ten specif­i­cally ask peo­ple to boy­cott Greggs, and I ex­plain that is dif­fi­cult for me as they are my lo­cal bak­ery.”- Elaine Ni­col

As ever, the Cathkin Re­lief Road prompted con­ver­sa­tion when we re­vealed the open­ing had been de­layed again:

“I don’t want it to open. I don’t even know where the cross­ing is go­ing to be. Wish they’d just keep that school bus on for them.”- Vicki Marr

Else­where, there was not much sym­pa­thy for coun­cil­lors set to stand down at this year’s lo­cal elec­tions:

“I’ll be vig­or­ously cam­paign­ing against them.” - San­dra Effie Arnott

“Time they stood down, we might get peo­ple that ac­tu­ally care about Ruther­glen voted in.”- Alice Demp­ster
