30 YEARS AGO

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

There were fresh doubts that a new £11mil­lion hospi­tal for Ruther­glen would ever be built, after rising costs forced Greater Glas­gow Health Board to re­view their plans.

A Ruther­glen cou­ple who had trav­elled to Cyprus to get mar­ried saw their dreams shat­tered after the au­thor­i­ties there would not ac­cept one of the doc­u­ments needed for the wed­ding as it was a pho­to­copy.

The lo­cal im­prove­ments com­mit­tee were told Ruther­glen’s fa­mous tree lined Main Street would have to un­dergo a ma­jor re­plant­ing if it was to sur­vive.

Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang were to be at the van­guard of a new clean air cam­paign.

Fall­ing at­ten­dance was poised to kill off Cathkin, Spring­hall and Whit­law­burn Com­mu­nity Coun­cil.
