Welcome again to our 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 pictures appear first on our website and are then reprinted in the paper.
This week our pictures show a joint 15th birthday party for Rachel Holloway and Kathryn Wild at Accrington Superbowl and a hen night for Vicki Smith at the Warners Arms, Accrington.
They also show Accrington Road Runners president Peter Blackledge presenting the overall male champion trophy to Brent Hogan at an awards evening held in the Dog and Otter in Great Harwood, and the quiz team ‘The Goolies’, consisting of Catharine Daly, Maria McGilveray, John McGilveray and Les Daly, looking for inspiration at Accrington Stanley sports bar.
They 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or via the Accrington Observer Facebook page.
