Lo­cal peo­ple pon­der sum­mer hol­i­day plans

Should we stay... or should we go?

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Mur­ray Spooner

Lo­cals have been de­bat­ing whether to get the sun cream out the cup­board or pull on the wa­ter­proofs as the na­tion was hit with a mix­ture of warm and hor­ren­dous weather this month.

The peo­ple of Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang have ex­pe­ri­enced highs of 28C in re­cent weeks, but have also had the um­brel­las up to take cover from tor­ren­tial rain.

So the Re­former took to the streets to ask shop­pers about their sum­mer plans.

Chris­tine Milne from Kings Park said: “I’m stay­ing at home be­cause I just don’t feel like go­ing away.

“I have a wee dog so I will pot­ter about with him and spend time in the gar­den.”

South­hill Av­enue, Ruther­glen, res­i­dent and golf fan Rina Duff is plan­ning on go­ing on two hol­i­days this year.

She said: “We are go­ing to Ma­jorca and Por­tu­gal. We are go­ing to play a bit of golf over there [in Por­tu­gal]. And I’ve just bought the tick­ets for the fam­ily to go to Ma­jorca.”

John Kerr from Ruther­glen was also head­ing to sunny Spain. “We’re all go­ing to Malaga,” he said. “I’ve been there be­fore. But we’re stay­ing in the old town this time and it’s lovely.”

Michael Fuller, of Stonelaw Drive, Ruther­glen, added: “We’ve been hav­ing some great weather here so I will be spend­ing some time with the grand­chil­dren. We en­joy the High­land games events and cul­ture shows so there is enough to keep us oc­cu­pied.”

We’re all go­ing to Malaga. We’re stay­ing in the old town which is lovely. John Kerr
