The event is the second of a series of community planning conferences organised by Renfrewshire Community Planning Partnership taking place between now and the end of June.

The focus of the conference will be on how the culture bid can provide a platform for local groups and charities to achieve their goals.

Representatives from charities, voluntary organisations, community groups and local businesses across Renfrewshire are encouraged to attend.

Attendees will hear from guest speakers about opportunities for community groups and take part in discussion groups and workshops.

Jean Cameron, director of Paisley’s UK City of Culture bid, said: “The 2021 UK City of Culture bid will provide many opportunities for communities across the whole of Renfrewshire, not only those that are Paisley-based.

“I would urge local community members and organisations to come along and find out how they can benefit their own organisation at the same time as backing Paisley’s bid.”

Anyone who would like to attend should call 0141 618 4168 (9.30am – 4.00pm, Monday to Friday) or email communityplanning@renfrewshire.gov.uk
