Week on so­cial me­dia

Rutherglen Reformer - - Reformer View -

There was kind words from a fam­ily mem­bers af­ter we re­vealed Liz Ar­buckle was step­ping down as chair­woman of the Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang Sports Coun­cil.

Here daugh­ter, Ja­nine McInulty, said on Face­book: “What a fan­tas­tic chair­woman she was. Cam­bus­lang and Ruther­glen Sports Coun­cil have ben­e­fited tremen­dously over the years with her amaz­ing ded­i­ca­tion and love of the job. A true un­sung hero. Well done mum, we are very proud of ev­ery­thing you have achieved.”

As ever the is­sue of dis­rup­tion to rail ser­vices also had peo­ple talk­ing:

“I think at this point it would be ac­tual sur­pris­ing news if it said:‘ Train pas­sen­gers in Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang warned to ex­pect nor­mal ser­vice.’”- Iain McDougall

“Well, imag­ine that, dis­rup­tions again. It was bad enough dur­ing Easter when I was £40 a day to get to work and back.”- Jackie McKay

Some of you com­mented on our front page story about res­i­dents in Burn­hill be­ing en­cour­aged to name and shame the yobs caus­ing anti-so­cial be­hav­iour in the scheme.

“Peo­ple don’t take pride in where they live and make the ef­fort to make the place look good. Make them pay for the dam­age they cause as well as carry out the re­pair.”- Dar­ren Steven­son

“Name them if you know but the prob­lem is they get a wee slap on the wrist. ”Mar­garet Brown

Fi­nally, lots of read­ers took to Face­book to pay trib­ute to Wul­lie and Senga McCal­lum, who have put their beloved cafe on Cam­bus­lang Main Street up for sale ahead of their re­tire­ment.

Many of you had kind words to say, but Mags Gra­ham summed up every­one’s feel­ings, say­ing: “Happy re­tire­ment to you both. You’ll be missed. End of an era.”
