This week, we're taking a trip down memory lane to look at the top photos and stories from the Ardrossan & Saltcoats Herald back in April 2004.

Do you remember these pics from 20 years ago?

Ardrossan and Saltcoats Herald: Stanley

The P7 class at Ardrossan’s Stanley Primary held a French style coffee morning in April 2004. Our picture shows Nicole Barclay and Scott Boyd preparing to serve some delicacies.

Ardrossan and Saltcoats Herald: BB

Graham Maxwell of the 1st Saltcoats Company of the Boys’ Brigade was presented with the Queen’s Badge, the highest award in the organisation, at the start of April 2004. He is pictured receiving his award from BB North Ayrshire Battalion vice-president Stuart Neil. Also pictured are Rev Brian Oxburgh and Jim Maxwell.

Ardrossan and Saltcoats Herald: Glencairn

Glencairn primary pupils helped the Rotary Club of Ardrossan and Saltcoats to raise money to provide fresh water for war-torn countries and disaster areas in April 2004.

Ardrossan and Saltcoats Herald: Pennyburn

Security was top of the agenda for the Pupil Council at Pennyburn Primary in Kilwinning in 2004. And thanks to their efforts the matter was brought to the attention of Councillor Peter McNamara, education chairman, and Councillor Margaret McDougall. A new fence costing £14,000 was installed around the playground to prevent it being used as a shortcut by non-pupils.

Ardrossan and Saltcoats Herald: Cancer

The Beith Branch of Ayrshire Cancer Support Group held a coffee morning in early April 2004. They also presented a cheque for more than £14,000 from the local branch to their HQ group.

Ardrossan and Saltcoats Herald: Girl band Lemonescent visit Ardrossan Academy in 2004

Lucky pupils at Ardrossan Academy were treated to an exclusive performance by former pupil Nikki McLachlan’s very own Lemonescent. The five-piece girl group were limbering up for their appearance at the 2004 Live + Loud festival at Hampden. Ardrossan girl Nikki said: “We played the same hall I used to play netball in and I passed an office I was where I was given a row! I’m lucky I could just go home after the concert and catch up with my family.” Pictured with the group are pupils Lynsey Barr, Laura Forsyth, Kristy Wilson, Ashley Pettigrew and Alison Bruce.
