East Kilbride News - - MEMORY LANE -

East Kil­bride District looked set to have the high­est poll tax fig­ure in Scot­land. A doc­u­ment which was set to be dis­trib­uted at a pub­lic meet­ing showed that the district el­e­ment of the com­mu­nity charge was set to be around £99. Cou­pled with the re­gional rate for Strath­clyde of £219, this meant that East Kil­bride was set to pay £318 for their poll tax in 1989/90.

Amer­i­can Multi-Cinema (AMC) which had been tipped to run a new ni­ne­screen cinema, pulled out of the UK and sold all of their as­sets. Af­ter pi­o­neer­ing the de­vel­op­ment of mul­ti­plex cin­e­mas in the UK, AMC sold out to the CIC Theatre Group and United Artists Com­mu­ni­ca­tions in a multi-mil­lion pound deal.

Lit­tle Daniel Mon­aghan was born on New Year’s day weigh­ing seven pounds three ounces to mum, Marie, from Green­hills.
