Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

A po­lit­i­cal row had bro­ken out over the level of polic­ing in Cam­bus­lang and Half­way, with one coun­cil­lor blast­ing the sit­u­a­tion as“in­ad­e­quate”and“a dis­grace”.

Swinge­ing gov­ern­ment cuts forced coun­cil hous­ing of­fi­cials to axe a £1mil­lion ma­jor re­pair pro­gramme for cen­tral Ruther­glen.

Ruther­glen Com­mu­nity Coun­cil was launch­ing an un­usual search - for a Dr Gor­man’s look-a-like, who could front their ap­peal fund­ing for a statue.

It was claimed that an ur­gent re-think was needed to save Cam­bus­lang from be­com­ing a shop­ping back­wa­ter.

Ruther­glen Swim­ming Pool’s in­come had dropped dra­mat­i­cally, some­thing that was blamed on the pool be­ing shut for five months.
