30 YEARS AGO

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

Ruther­glen hous­ing of­fi­cials took ur­gent ac­tion when it was dis­cov­ered that as­bestos was in the homes of 112 fam­i­lies in Blair­beth.

An East­field wo­man was told that she was un­able to use her back gar­den for two years be­cause of con­stant flood­ing - and coun­cil ex­perts ad­mit­ted they were baf­fled as to the cause.

An am­bi­tious plan to re­store a tree-lined Ruther­glen Main Street to its best was given the seal of ap­proval by the town’s im­prove­ment’s com­mit­tee.

Cam­bus­lang Hous­ing Of­fice apol­o­gised to an East­field fam­ily for mov­ing them back into their home be­fore im­prove­ments to it had ac­tu­ally been com­pleted.

Princess Anne vis­ited Ruther­glen’s DHSS of­fice, with a crowd of 400 there to see her.
