40 YEARS AGO

East Kilbride News - - MEMORY LANE -

The em­i­nent Scot­tish ac­tor An­drew Cruick­shank was to of­fi­cially open the Vil­lage Theatre.

Mr Cruik­shank, who starred in many fa­mous pro­duc­tions, was best re­mem­bered for his char­ac­ter­i­sa­tion of the lov­able Dr Cameron in the pop­u­lar TV se­ries, Dr Fin­lay’s Case­book. He un­veiled a spe­cial plaque.

Over 100 em­ploy­ees at the Na­tional Engi­neer­ing Lab­o­ra­tory in the Kelvin claimed that the paint­work on their cars had been dam­aged by soot.

A list was handed to of­fi­cials of the dis­trict coun­cil who had been car­ry­ing out tests.

Folk in the town were glued to STV to sup­port its own Miss EK, Cather­ine Jane Harvie, who was in the fi­nals of Miss STV.
