Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

Ruther­glen po­lice were winning the bat­tle on crime, ac­cord­ing to new fig­ures seen by the Re­former that showed of­fences com­mit­ted in the Burgh and Cam­bus­lang had dropped by 20 per cent in 1986.

Four lo­cal families were be­ing sen­tenced to live in ap­palling con­di­tions for a fur­ther two years, as the Sec­re­tary of State pon­dered their fu­ture.

Staff at Ruther­glen’s DHSS and un­em­ploy­ment ben­e­fit of­fices made a ner­vous re­turn to work af­ter hav­ing taken in­dus­trial ac­tion over a 15 per cent pay claim.

Ruther­glen Ten­ants As­so­ci­a­tion gave the thumbs down to the district coun­cil’s‘points for houses’ al­lo­ca­tion sys­tem.

Bankhead Pri­mary pupils and staff re­turned from the Easter break to the de­press­ing news the school had been van­dalised again.
