Largs has a long reputation for ballroom dancing thanks to the former Moorings and Marine and Curlinghall Hotel buildings in the town.

And the tradition was still very much kept going in 2015 with a ballroom dancing class held at St Columba's Church.

And it was the end of the road for Millport bus driver Sandy Wright who retired after 38 years serving the island. Sandy is pictured during one of his final trips for Millport Motors.

Largs and Millport Weekly News: The year also marked the announcement of a special comeback for famous Largs pop music duo Gallagher and Lyle who first hit the charts in the early 70s with McGuinness Flint, before embarking as a duo in the late 70s and making regular appearances on Top of the Pops with classic songs such as 'Breakaway', which was later covered by Art Garfunkel, and 'I Wanna Stay With You."

Largs and Millport Weekly News: This was because the pop legends Benny and Graham combined with Largs Players to stage the world premiere of the musical based on their songs, 'When I'm Dead And Gone', in the following year with five sell out nights at Barrfields Theatre.

It was the brainchild of theatre director and Deputy Principal of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland Maggie Kinloch, who listened to them as she grew up in Largs and was later inspired to create the show.

The musical director was Ryan Moir and musician Matthew Hickman, who is better known to his fans as  Brown Bear, was part of the team who arranged the songs for the performance. Pupils from Largs Academy, also featured in in the production, as well as a late cameo from Gallagher and Lyle themselves.
