JOIN us as we take a trip down memory lane to reminisce about what was happening in Clydebank fifteen years ago.

We have delved into the Post’s archives to pick out some stories from over a decade ago.

Here are some photographs from our edition published on Wednesday, May 21, 2008.

Do you remember these stories or spot any familiar faces?

Residents across Clydebank were invited to enter the area's equivalent of Britain's Got Talent.

The event, organised by Tullochan Trust's Primary Project Activ8ors, was open to all residents, community groups, or schools.

The youngsters behind the competition decided to put it together after watching the success of television shows like Britain's Got Talent and The X-Factor.

The final was held on June 25 that year at the Loch Lomond Shores Aquarium.

There was lots of entertainment on offer for both kids and parents.

New mums and mums-to-be at a local breastfeeding group got together during Breastfeeding Awareness Week.

Clydebank midwife Alison Henighan said that although some groups in the area were struggling to keep up the numbers at the time, Bankie mums seemed to always show out in force at the group each week.

The theme of that year's National Breastfeeding Awareness Week was 'Breastfeeding: Every day makes a difference to your baby'.

Carer Mhairi Brown was over the moon after winning £18,750 with three tickets in the People's Postcode Lottery Street Prize.

The good news could not have come at a better time as the then 38-year-old - who was a full-time carer for her daughter - was preparing to send her off on a trip to Lourdes.

Mhairi was living in Knightswood's Gorget Avenue at the time.
