30 YEARS AGO

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

Four Ruther­glen fam­i­lies fi­nally won their bat­tle for ur­gent re-hous­ing and a move from a water-sod­den ten­e­ment - af­ter four years of protests and ap­peals.

Ruther­glen’s Gin­ger­bread group, for sin­gle par­ents, were told to pay up or get out of their premises af­ter a hire charge was sud­denly in­tro­duced on the build­ing they used.

A coun­cil­lor slammed the deal which trans­ferred more than 1000 Castlemilk homes to the Scot­tish Spe­cial Hous­ing As­so­ci­a­tion.

Bik­ers lost out in their at­tempts to have a scram­bling track at Cathkin Braes, as nearby Car­munnock res­i­dents claimed it would be too much of a dis­tur­bance for them.

A coun­cil­lor claimed that Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang had be­come garbage blackspots.
