20 YEARS AGO

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane -

Sev­en­teen drug deal­ers were ar­rested by Ruther­glen Po­lice in a month and a fur­ther 43 peo­ple were charged.

The fig­ures were a huge in­crease on the same pe­riod the pre­vi­ous year, and po­lice were de­lighted their hard stance on tack­ling drugs prob­lems was pay­ing off.

The fight to save Burn­side Com­mu­nity Coun­cil was won by lo­cal res­i­dents.

South La­nark­shire Coun­cil agreed to re­tain the status quo after a mas­sive re­sponse from peo­ple de­mand­ing that the com­mu­nity coun­cil re­mained.

Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang were dev­as­tated by se­vere weather after ma­jor floods swept the coun­try.

The vil­lage of Hall­side was par­tic­u­larly badly hit.
