Birthday celebrations and evenings in Accrington’s pubs feature in this week’s Time-trip column.

Each week we will publish a set of pictures taken by our photographers which appeared in the paper in the 2000s.

The photos appear first on our website and are then reprinted in the paper.

This week two of our pictures show locals enjoying a drink at Warners pub, Accrington town centre.

There are also shots of two celebrations - Stacey Dawson’s 30th birthday at Papa Luigi’s in Accrington, and Bridget Ridge and Samantha Leonard’s joint birthdays at Accrington’s Brooks Club.

The photographs were all taken in the early 2000s.

If you have any pictures you would like us to feature in the column, please send them into us at or via the Accrington Observer Facebook page.
