30 YEARS AGO

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

Citylink De­vel­op­ments Ltd were set to go for broke in the lo­cal area as they planned to in­tro­duce an 11,460 square me­tre re­tail com­plex in Farmeloan Road - plans that would surely anger lo­cal shop­keep­ers.

Work had started on what was to be a ma­jor sports and recre­ation site for Cam­bus­lang.

A cam­paign had been launched to im­prove lo­cal play fa­cil­i­ties through­out Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang.

The axe fell on three of Ruther­glen Main Street’s trees, the first to be cut down since a re­plant­ing pro­gramme was con­firmed for the area.

Rel­a­tives told a fa­tal ac­ci­dent in­quiry of their shock at a 45-year-old man’s death from a frac­tured skull after being sent home from hos­pi­tal.
