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, June 18, 2008.

Do you remember these stories or spot any familiar faces?

A dedicated primary school headteacher was given an emotional send-off by her pupils as she prepared to retire.

Celia Cameron had been in charge at Garscadden Primary in Yoker for 15 years and was left shocked when a surprise celebration tea party was put on by all of the children.

Miss Cameron was presented with a bouquet of flowers, a commemorative quaich, and a gift voucher.

A daring couple took on a tandem 1,000-mile bike ride with one acting as the eyes, and the other as the ears.

Bob and Louise Nolan, who are deaf and blind, were told by their son that they were “mad” for deciding to cycle from Lands End to John O’Groats.

The couple completed the gruelling challenge in a bid to raise as much money as possible for charity Deafblind Scotland.

It was all smiles at a Clydebank nursery when some familiar faces stopped by.

Primary one pupils from Edinbarnet, in Faifley, went back to see their old nursery friends and teachers.

The youngsters went along to Lennox Early Education Centre as part of their integration into the big school and enjoyed taking some time out from learning to have fun.
