East Kilbride News - - MEMORY LANE -

East Kil­bride was set to get more new jobs.

That was the good news an­nounced at a meet­ing be­tween Cor­po­ra­tion and District Coun­cil rep­re­sen­ta­tives.

The cor­po­ra­tion es­ti­mated that about 1035 jobs would have been cre­ated in the new town through new devel­op­ments and ex­pan­sion of ex­ist­ing com­pa­nies.

The pub­lic­ity sur­round­ing the SNP’s pro­posal to plant a com­mem­o­ra­tive re­sulted in a flood of ap­pli­cants from fam­i­lies, clubs and or­gan­i­sa­tions all anx­ious to plant their very own tree.

A po­lit­i­cal dog fight erupted when an ap­pli­ca­tion had been con­sid­ered from the lo­cal con­stituency or­gan­iser for the SNP.

In­dus­trial and com­mer­cial links be­tween Ja­pan and EK were strength­ened with two im­por­tant events tak­ing place in the town in­clud­ing the open­ing of Atholl House .
