20 YEARS AGO

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

Spec­u­la­tion was run­ning high that Ruther­glen Ma­ter­nity was set to close as early as March 1998, sev­eral years ahead of the pre­vi­ously re­leased sched­ule.

A school­boy high on a cock­tail of drink and drugs stabbed an 85-year-old pen­sioner in the face be­fore leav­ing her for dead in her home.

An im­me­di­ate in-depth re­view of hall lets was or­dered by South La­nark­shire Coun­cil af­ter weeks of un­rest among lo­cal clubs.

The lo­cal cit­i­zens ad­vice bureau in Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang an­nounced that they would be go­ing part-time from later in the year.

Res­i­dents in a Cam­bus­lang block of flats were unim­pressed when a chim­ney was nailed to their wall.
