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 10 years ago.

Here are some photographs from our edition published on Wednesday, May 13 2009.

Do you remember these stories or spot any familiar faces?

1. Clydebank photographer shuts up shop

Clydebank Post: Well-known local photographer Alex Holmes closed his doors for the final time 15 years ago. 

The 74-year-old photographed film stars, royalty, weddings and christenings during his career which spanned over five decades.

2. Hats off to chefs

Clydebank Post: Budding cooks were given certificates to mark their new-found culinary skills at a course at Yoker Community Campus.

Bill Kidd, previously MSP for Glasgow Anniesland, presented the awards to the kids from Kingsway Youth Group on the cookery scheme, which was run by Momentum and Sport Glasgow.

3. First aiders up for award

Clydebank Post: Christopher Dunion and Emma Nicholson, both 18, ran a youth club in Faifley where they taught first-aid skills and volunteered 24 hours each month with St Andrew’s Ambulance — all on top of being full-time students and holding down part-time jobs.

This led to them being nominated for the Young Person of the Year competition.

4. School hosts maths challenge

Clydebank Post: St Columbia's High hosted a maths challenge 15 years ago. Five local primary schools took part - St Mary's, St Claire's, St Joseph's, St Stephen's and St Eunan's.

Groups of six pupils from each primary school competed against each other, solving eight mathematical and logical problems and eight bonus questions.

5. Final hurdle for coach

Clydebank Post: Duncan MacNeill retired 15 years ago from sports coaching. 

He joined West Dunbartonshire Council’s sports development team in 1994 and worked tirelessly to give kids in Clydebank a chance in athletics.

The 65-year-old has overseen the building of facilities, the setting up of a school programme and drafted in coaches to enable the area’s youth athletics programme to go from being almost non-existent to a slick set-up.

6. Clydebank Pipe Band's bid for glory

Clydebank Post: Clydebank Pipe Band were getting ready to compete in the world championships at Levengrove Park 15 years ago.

They competed for the first time in the Grade Two category — the second-highest rung on the ladder of competitive piping.

Having taken on all-comers the previous year, the band faced its biggest challenge yet.
