Thank God! I have been searching the web for ages
trying to find a 'page' about (especially) Saltcoats. Now I have found
it. I would like to hear if there are other members from Saltcoats who
can especially remember the 'Glad Fifties' and the 'Monkey Walk'I moved
to Saltcoats at the beginning of the fifties and left to join the army
abou 1963 since then I haven't been back but woul dearly hear from
anyone who might remember me!!Although I have lived in Denmark for the
past 30 years I still regard Saltcoats as my home. Regards

I live in Kilbirnie but my Ballanti(y)ne rellys came from Stevenston,
mainly. I have "Trees" for Ballanti(y)nes of Stevenston which
I would share with any interested, only wishing to add info to these
trees in exchange. I think the Threetowners web site is great and hope
it continues to grow. Agnes Harris.

What a wonderful site and a really great idea. I originate from
Saltcoats and have lived in South Africa for the past eighteen years.
Hugh, I have found my long lost cousin James MacCreadie as a result of
this site. I also see Alan Buchanan beat me to it. I met him for the
first time only last week by chance, and told him about this site. I
would like to hear from any long lost friends out there, especially
those who went to St Michael's Academy in the Seventies. Here's hoping
your site goes from strength to strength. Kindest regards,Paul Dorrian
