Several Blantyre ladies married men from outwith the area and appeared in the local newspapers of January 1979. First up was Miss Anne Galloway of 22 Stonefield Crescent, who married Allan Cook of Burnbank. The couple married in Blantyre Old Parish Church, High Blantyre. Anne was a neighbour of mine, just living a few doors up.
Next couple was Carol Ann McInally of Zambesi Drive who married John McAllister of Easterhouse. The couple’s happy wedding church was St Joseph’s on Glasgow Road.
Finally, beautiful bride Elizabeth Allardyce of Berkley Drive, Blantyre married Ian McLean of Dalkeith. Their wedding took place in David Livingstone Memorial Church.
