Police office closure would be another blow for town
It seems Cambuslang cannot buy a break right now.
On the back of three banks announcing they were closing and the community council’s bombshell report about the Main Street, we have now found out the police station may also close.
While some will point out the station is not open to the public, that will come as scant consolation to the community.
It’s mere presence will have brought reassurance to residents while those cops who are based there will use local shops on a regular basis.
The whole thing seems even more bizarre when you consider the station has only been open for 23 years.
It remains to be seen whether the plan will go ahead, and we are obviously pleased Rutherglen will remain open, but if it does close, it will leave another gaping hole in a town already desperate for new life to be breathed into it.
Another group of people in need of a break is the voters of the UK. But we will be asked to go to the polls once more on June 8 after Theresa May announced a general election.
It seems the country cannot get enough of elections right now, and it is particularly unfortunate this will fall just weeks after the local elections, which should be the focus right now.
Many will be feeling fatigued but you can read what the local parties have said on page six.
Finally, last week’s Reformer included a spelling error in our front page headline. This was due to a production error that was not picked up at editorial level.
The Reformer strives for complete accuracy. However, we recognise that on this occasion, we have fallen short of the standards expected of us and we apologise to our readers. Douglas Dickie
