2008 in pictures 

Our favourite snap-shots and videos from the year gone by

Well, what a year 2008 has been!

They say time flies when you're having fun, and we don't know about you but here at SwindonWeb we would certainly vouch for that. 
 
We've bumped into the likes of Jack Nicholson, Dame Kelly Holmes, Chris Fountain, David Cameron, Jordan, Tony Adams, Tim Westwood, Paul Merson, Razor Ruddock, Spoony and many, many more. 
 
Picture of the year!

Yes, you name it. The list of celebrities (some better known than others) is endless!
 
Throughout the year, though, there is one thing we have made sure we've done above all else - capture everything on camera and on video and here are our favourites from 2008.
 
We hope it bings back a few memories...
