A dis­abled East­field man was left with a kitchen that looked like a DIY dis­as­ter zone af­ter a dis­trict coun­cil im­prove­ment scheme went dis­as­trously wrong.

A Ruther­glen stu­dent was picked for the trip of a life­time as she was to spend three months in Aus­tralia.

Plans to re­de­velop the for­mer Smiddy site on Ruther­glen Main Street were still on the draw­ing board.
