Well it’s that time of year again to access all the great Historic Buildings of Renfrewshire, Dust the cobwebs off the hiking boot’s if your climbing the Coats Memorial, And cameras at the ready to share our photographs of our stunning architecture with the world on-line.

This year there shall no doubt see changes as we go about our town places lost such as the Regal which shall no longer be seen looking down from the stunning views of the Coats Memorial Church or maybe even our last chance to look at the old St Mirren stadium from the top of the Coats Memorial, So this year if your sitting in the Council Chambers pretending to be our Provost or if your in the cells below the Sheriff Court please come back into www.paisley.org.uk and share your pictures of the day.

New this year, the Anchor Mills West Gatehouse, completing the regeneration of the vast mill complex. Also archaeology at Paisley’s unique Abbey Drain, and near the Collegiate Church, Castle Semple.

Specially for Homecoming Scotland 2009, Renfrewshire’s Registrar Service will provide taster sessions in searching for your family history. To book a half hour slot with a registrar in Renfrewshire House Customer Service Centre, Paisley, phone 0141 840 3362.

Guided walks at Formakin, Johnstone town centre and on Oakshaw in Paisley.

Don’t forget Renfrewshire’s Children’s Passport, which makes our Doors Open Day a great family day out.
