30 YEARS AGO

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

A Cam­bus­lang wo­man leapt into ac­tion and acted as an emer­gency mid­wife when her next door neigh­bour started to give birth, help­ing to save the new­born’s life.

Work on the new look Ruther­glen Main Street was set to be­gin with an of­fi­cial tree plant­ing cer­e­mony to launch the project op­po­site the Town Hall.

Two coun­cil of­fi­cials clashed as the on­go­ing row over the con­di­tion of boil­ers at Ruther­glen Swim­ming pool, which were pre­vent­ing the pool’s re-open­ing, heated up.

A bid to build a sports cen­tre on dis­used foot­bll pitches had cleared the first hur­dle.

Hoover toasted the 40th an­niver­sary of their Cam­bus­lang fac­tory by buy­ing the site it­self, se­cur­ing hun­dreds of jobs in the process.
