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 more than a decade ago.

Here are some photographs from our edition published on Wednesday, April 29, 2009.

Do you remember these stories or spot any familiar faces?

1. Kids come out on top

Clydebank Post: Kilbowie Primary pupils had swept the board by achieving several public speaking and football awards.

The children were handed certificates for reaching the finals of two public speaking events.

The teams took part in the final of the 2009 West Dunbartonshire Council Primary Public Speaking Competition in the Denny Civic Theatre and reached the finals of the Victim Support Public Speaking Competition which took place at St Andrew’s High School.

2. Primary pupils treated to musical performance

Clydebank Post: Pupils assembled to be treated to a special performance by a talented choir all the way from America.

The 412 choir hopped across the Atlantic to sing at a number of venues, and the kids at Blairdardie Primary were spellbound by their amazing performance.

3. Dance fever

Clydebank Post: Dance fever had gripped Garscadden Primary as they were treated to a special dance routine.

The primary seven pupils at the Yoker school spent six weeks working with dance students from Anniesland College and entertained the school with the moves they learned.

The students then performed some of their own dances.

4. Time to Rhyme

Clydebank Post: Rhyming, singing, and reading were the order of the day at a children’s Rhymetime session.

The scheme at Dalmuir Library helped tots develop communication and let them play with kids their own age.

5. Old Kilpatrick couple celebrate diamond wedding anniversary

Clydebank Post: Love was still very much in the air for Old Kilpatrick couple Johnny and Mairi Hill.

The pair celebrated their diamond wedding anniversary after 60 years together.

The couple entertained guests at the Milton Inn Hotel to mark the occasion.

6. Film to celebrate heritage of River Clyde

Clydebank Post: A film featuring footage of Clydebank shipbuilding in its heyday was created as part of an exhibition celebrating the heritage of the River Clyde.

The movie brought together independent films, newsreels, and amateur footage dating from 1912 to 1970 and was to be shown alongside displays of photographs and people’s stories.

Part of the footage was a film from 1949 called Visit to a Shipbuilding Yard which featured two children being given a tour of John Brown’s Yard.
