Hi I'm originally from Stevenston, I went to St John's until 1969 and then on to St Michael's until 1974. I married Danny McSorley from Saltcoats - also St Michaels - in 1979, we moved about a bit and then settled in Neilston East Renfrewshire in 1983. We had 6 children, now aged between 23 and 11. Sadly Danny died in April 2000. I'm still living in Neilston with all 6 children -who show no signs of moving out!

My name is John Donnelly and I was raised in Saltcoats and left in 1979 to come and do missionary work here in England. I went to St Mary's in Saltcoats before going to St Michael's, Kilwinning - we were the first First Year at the new school building in Kilwinning.

Hi Anne

I read that you lived in St Andrews Rd, I also lived there till '64 when we left for Australia. I was born in Castle Rd then we moved with my Nanny to St Margarets Rd till we got the house in St Andrews Rd, number 14.I was only 12 when we migrated. :)
