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, September 10, 2008.

Do you remember these stories or spot any familiar faces?

1. Clyde shipbuilders bring boat back to life

A team of Clyde shipbuilders brought a damaged boat back to life.

The Roseann — a small vessel — sprung a leak in 2008 and was in urgent need of repair.

But owners, the Bridge 19-40 Canal society, could not afford to carry out the work.

So, kind-hearted workers at BVT Surface Fleet at Scotstoun and Govan volunteered their time and built a brand new hull and seating for inside the boat.

2. Advice on cats and dogs

Kids learned about keeping animals safe and healthy at a talk at their school.

The pupils at St Clare’s Primary in Drumchapel were visited by Alex Robertson from the Glasgow Dog and Cat Home.

It was explained to them why animal cruelty is wrong and they were taught ways to help give pets a better life.

Alex also talked about his job looking after abandoned pooches and unwell kitties.

3. On 'Yer Bike

Bike ace Mark Beaumont was on hand to welcome a new art installation to Clydebank.

The round-the-world cyclist came along for the unveiling of the ‘Bankies Bike’, a giant steel sculpture next to the regenerated canal.

At 3.5m high and 5.8m long, it is one of three pieces of artwork commissioned by West Dunbartonshire Council from artist John Crosby.

Mark said at the time: “Having pedalled 18,297 miles around the world, through twenty countries in 194 days and seventeen hours, I think it would be safe to say that I am a bike enthusiast.

“It’s brilliant to see the regeneration of the canal and further development of cycle paths and hopefully the installation of the Bankies Bike will encourage all ages to get on their own bikes.”

4. Luck be a lady

One lucky lady walked away with a brand new car after winning a raffle held by St Margaret’s Hospice.

Mrs Burke was delighted with her new Vauxhall Astra, despite not holding a driving licence.

Her daughter, from Drumchapel, was on hand to chauffeur her around, and it was extra motivation for Mrs Burke to keep up her driving lessons.

Arnold Clark donated the car for the competition and the hospice was delighted with the number of tickets sold.

5. We can with CLAN!

Fun and learning were on the agenda at a Whitecrook learning celebration.

The event was organised by the Community, Literacy and Numeracy organisation (CLAN) and held in the newly opened Centre81 in Braes Avenue.

CLAN aimed to help those with learning problems expand their skills and people were on hand from Clydebank College, Routes to Learning and Dyslexia Scotwest, amongst others, to provide information.

Alongside this was a theatre workshop, chocolate tasting, arts and crafts, games and competitions.

Lessons were put on hold as high school pupils welcomed a visitor.

The Natural High Schools tour, run by singer-songwriter David Graham, rolled into St Andrew’s High to promote healthy lifestyles.

The singer visited the Whitecrook school in association with Strathclyde police.
