40 YEARS AGO

East Kilbride News - - MEMORY LANE -

Five swim­mers from East Kil­bride Am­a­teur Swim­ming Club won 14 medals be­tween them at the Scot­tish age group fi­nals at the Royal Com­mon­wealth Pool in Ed­in­burgh. The top swim­mer from the club was Tracey Hill­house, who won five medals from six fi­nals.

Oth­ers were Elaine Paul, Jim McMeekin, Denise Free­stone and Gillian Lock­hart.

While La­nark­shire Health Board didn’t say as much, doc­tors in East Kil­bride were anx­ious that they may have been con­sid­er­ing the pos­si­bil­ity of clos­ing down the GP ma­ter­nity unit at Hairmyres Hos­pi­tal.

Beck­ford Lodge and Alexander Hos­pi­tal had al­ready been axed and GPs called a meeting of their ma­ter­nity unit li­ai­son com­mit­tee.
