20 YEARS AGO

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

A 12-year-old Cam­bus­lang boy trag­i­cally plunged to his death through the roof of a dis­used fac­tory only yards from his home.

A court heard how a Burn­side teenager had torched his fam­ily home and killed his mother in the blaze af­ter a fall­ing out with his big brother.

A move to trans­form Blair­tum House into a hos­tel for young peo­ple had met with a cool re­sponse in Burn­side, with lo­cals con­cerned as to how the cen­tre would be man­aged.

It was re­vealed that Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang had one of the low­est rates for road in­juries in the whole of South La­nark­shire.

Half­way Re­cre­ation Cen­tre re-opened af­ter a ma­jor im­prove­ment pro­gramme funded by South La­nark­shire Coun­cil.
