30 YEARS AGO

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

A group of tod­dlers saw their hopes of Easter fun ru­ined when the lo­cal grants area com­mit­tee turned down their group’s re­quest for cash and, to add in­sult to in­jury, a lo­cal coun­cil­lor ac­cused them of greed.

A Ruther­glen man who had a mir­a­cle es­cape from death when he was in the path of an on­com­ing train was re­cov­er­ing in hos­pi­tal af­ter hav­ing his foot am­pu­tated.

High de­mand from se­nior cit­i­zens for a home on a Cam­bus­lang shel­tered hous­ing scheme looked set to be in vain due to the high de­mand.

An an­gry row took place over plan­ning per­mis­sion be­ing re­fused for a Croft­foot pub/ restau­rant.

Damp­ness in To­ry­glen coun­cil houses was reach­ing record lev­els.
