30 YEARS AGO

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

A Ruther­glen hous­ing scheme was set to be­come a pub­lic trans­port desert as the bulk of Farme Cross was set to be with­out a bus ser­vice, spark­ing a fu­ri­ous back­lash from dozens of lo­cal res­i­dents.

Ruther­glen ten­ants told Glas­gow District Coun­cil’s sub-com­mit­tee that hous­ing wait­ing lists could take no more pri­or­ity moves.

Work was to start at the end of the month on Ruther­glen’s £250,000 sports park – three months later than planned.

Hun­dreds of moth­ers who were ea­ger to join adult ed­u­ca­tion pro­grammes at Cathkin High were ef­fec­tively barred be­cause there were no crèche fa­cil­i­ties at the school.

A cam­paign to site Castlemilk’s new sports cen­tre on the Bar­lia foot­ball pitches had stalled.
