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, October 1, 2008.

Do you remember these stories or spot any familiar faces?

1. Clydebank pupils reunite 50 years later 

Clydebank Post: Former Clydebank High pupils came together for a reunion – 50 years after leaving the school.

Those who were in their fifth and sixth years in 1957 and 1958 got together, with some travelling from as far as New Zealand, South Africa, America, Canada, and France.

They visited the school to see how it had changed, and many expressed surprise and regret that the school was being replaced rather than modernised.

The next day they enjoyed a reception and lunch in the Beardmore Hotel followed by visits to the Titan Crane and Auchentoshan Distillery.

2. Star-struck pupils meet Clydebank Big Brother star

Clydebank Post: A group of star-struck school pupils got the chance to grill Clydebank’s newest celebrity.

Big Brother runner-up Mikey Hughes – who was the show’s first-ever blind contestant – turned up at St Columba’s High in what was his first appearance as a celebrity in the town.

The 33-year-old radio producer was delighted to join the youngsters at the Drumry school to show his support for a talking magazine that the pupils produced for kids who have visual impairments.

3. Pupils clean up act

Clydebank Post: Pupils were cleaning up their act and encouraging others to do the same.

The kids at Bankhead and Garscadden primary schools were promoting cleaner air as part of European Mobility Week.

The campaign aimed to get people out of their cars and get them walking or cycling.

There were smiles all around as the kids displayed some colourful banners with the environmental message.

4. Dalmuir Park lit up for VE Day

Clydebank Post: Dalmuir Park was lit up like VE Day as the post-Second World War celebrations were recreated.

Light displays on trees and the Vital Spark boat were set up, and with the reflections on the water, the park was made bright and colourful.

A merry-go-round provided entertainment for kids and special treats like candyfloss were on offer to keep them smiling.

5. Sir Alex Ferguson on 'strong connection' with Drumchapel team

Drumchapel Amateurs was one of the first teams he played for and more than 45 years later (at the time of publication) he still had a strong connection to the club.

It was therefore a historic moment when the Amateur’s under-13s team was drawn against Harmony Row under-13s – another one of Fergie’s old teams – in the under-13s Scottish Cup.

The tie was played at Glenhead Park.

6. Talented Bankie has art displayed in London

Clydebank Post: A talented Bankie was rubbing shoulders with the best in art and design after his work was selected for display at a prestigious festival.

Darren Osbourne, 23 at the time of publication, was part of a team of graduates from Glasgow School of Art whose installation was on display at the glamorous London Design Festival.

The former St Andrew’s High pupil, from Mountblow, was loving his time in the capital where his installation “you.k” is on display.
