Here are two mums who are twins and their daughters. All 4 graduated from University of Paisley with the same degrees. The graduation ceremony was in Ayr Town Hall and they received Bachelor of Science degrees in Health Studies. Left to right they are Denise Piper, a nurse at Crosshouse Hospital, Jean Piper, a community sister with Coylton Primary Care Trust, Catherine Strannigan, a community sister with Bourtreehill Primary Care Trust in Irvine and Ashley Strannigan, a nurse at Crosshouse Hospital. Jean and Kay's (Catherine)  maiden name was Malone. At one time they lived at Crosshill Road, Maybole

Professor Alex MacLennan, assistant Principal and Director of University Campus Ayr said, "We are delighted at this success. It is quite something for two mums who are twins and their daughters to graduate on the same day with the same degree. We offer our sincerest congratulations."

This is a photo of my mother, Catherine Crosbie, taken on the day of her 100th birthday, 19 October 2000. As you can see she is holding the card from the Queen, which now replaces the redundant telegram! Mum was born in Maybole, as were her two brothers Peter and William Tweedily and her sister Elizabeth (Lizzie) who married Maybole businessman George Mulvein in the early 1930s. Uncle Peter, the eldest, died in 1974 aged about 77.  My uncle Bill, who was a stalwart member of the British Legion and the bowling club in Maybole died in Ayr aged 97 in 1995. Her sister, who will be 95 in February, lives near Bristol, so there is longevity in the family!     Lin Thomas
