The For Paisley 2021 campaign aims to give everybody in Paisley, Renfrewshire and beyond the chance to share what they love about the town and fly the flag for the culture bid.

It includes a brand book – available to download as of today – including posters, logos, email signature, and key cultural facts about the bid and the town.

The aim is for anybody with an interest in the bid to find out how they can be part of it and access all the material they need to showcase their support For Paisley 2021 and develop their own bid campaign.

The campaign was launched in the town’s High Street by Councillor Mark Macmillan, chair of the Paisley 2021 partnership board, and Paisley 2021 Bid Director Jean Cameron.

They were joined by community groups, people from the local cultural scene, local business group Paisley First, pupils from local secondary Gleniffer High School, and town centre businesses including Linda Nutini, owner of Castelvecchi chip shop and mum of singing star Paolo.

The lunchtime launch included a giant Paisley 2021 logo and gave passers-by the chance to stop to have their picture taken with branded props.

The launch took place on the same day as the longlist of albums for the 2016 Scottish Album of the Year Award was announced. Paisley will be home to the SAY Award – the most prestigious date in the Scottish music calendar – for the next two years, with the 2016 ceremony taking in Paisley Town Hall on 29 June.

Councillor Macmillan said: “Winning the UK City of Culture 2021 title would make a massive difference to the town, and everybody in Paisley and Renfrewshire would feel the benefits.

“We have had great support from the local community since the bid launched last year – but there may be others who want to get involved and are not sure how.

“The aim of the brand book is to make it easy for any individual, group or business to show their support – the next few years are going to be such an exciting journey for the town and we want as many people as possible to come with us.”

Bid Director Jean Cameron added:  “Paisley 2021 branding has been visible around the town and at our events for a while now – it reflects the Paisley Pattern and the values and high standard of creativity for which the town is known around the world.

“Today is about taking the brand into the heart of that community and saying ‘this is yours, please use it’ – and that goes for Paisley people throughout the rest of the world too.

“Although we have had great backing to date we will only have a chance of winning if we show the judges at the UK Government’s Department of Culture, Media and Sport the local community is For Paisley 2021.

“To have this show of support on the day we get the first look at some of the fantastic musicians heading to Paisley for the SAY Award just shows the momentum the town is building.”

The Living Wage Gathers Pace in Renfrewshire

The drive for a fair and prosperous future for Renfrewshire is gathering momentum. Councillors are getting ready to vote on submitting an application for the council to become an accredited Living Wage Employer and record numbers of local businesses have attended a seminar on the benefits of accreditation.


Councillor Mark Macmillan, Leader of Renfrewshire Council, said, “We want to build a prosperous, progressive future where people can thrive in employment and businesses can grow as a result of having a loyal and committed workforce. The Living Wage is part of that successful picture.”

The Living Wage is a voluntary hourly rate set independently, updated annually and calculated according to the basic cost of living in the UK. It affords people the opportunity to provide for themselves and their family. This year, it is set at £8.25 an hour.

However, there are around 16,000 jobs in Renfrewshire that pay below the Living Wage. So, for many people, work is not a guaranteed route to a sustainable standard of living. Renfrewshire’s independent Tackling Poverty Commission recommended that the number of jobs paying less than a Living Wage be halved to improve lives throughout the area.

The council is encouraging other Renfrewshire employers to join it in seeking accreditation and its campaign is gathering strength. More than 60 local businesses took part in a seminar on Wednesday and discussed how the Living Wage can benefit them, their employees and Renfrewshire’s communities.

David Faith from the Living Wage Campaign, who spoke at the seminar said, “I’m very impressed with the turnout from Renfrewshire’s business community. This is the largest event of this kind that I’ve seen. Some businesses have signed up to the accreditation process immediately and I look forward to working with others over the next few months. Of course, I’ll also be delighted to hear from any other organisations who want to join the campaign.”

Other speakers at the seminar included: Alison Dowling from the Renfrewshire Wide Credit Union and Bob Grant from the Chamber of Commerce, both of whom are already Accredited Living Wage Employers, and Fiona Hughes, the council’s Procurement Manager.

The council is Renfrewshire’s largest employer and Councillor Macmillan sees its accreditation as an important step towards creating a Living Wage economy. He said, “The council and business community share many aims: growth, success, a first class committed workforce and the wish to be associated with sound and progressive social values. The Living Wage will help to achieve these aims and to improve the lives of employees, their families and the wider community.”

Big-hearted Provost passes £25,000 charity milestone

Four local charities will be boosted this Christmas as money raised for Renfrewshire’s Provost Anne Hall’s charity fundraising scheme passes the £25,000 milestone.

Over £11,000 has been raised through the charity scheme this year with almost £6,000 alone raised by a team of charity daredevils who took part in the Provost’s skydive stunt during the summer.

Provosts Charities 05

Other charity fundraising activities include two working challenges in Kwik Fit Paisley and Renfrewshire Chamber of Commerce, the Provost’s raffle, two large donations from Donna Haveron of the Slug in a Bottle Market and raffle winner Fraser Carlin, and tickets to Kevin Bridges donated by Lambert Contracts, which raised over £5,000 in total.

The money will be shared equally amongst the Provost’s four chosen charities – Renfrewshire Carers’ Centre, RAMH (Recovery Across Mental Health) and two hospices – Accord and St Vincent’s.

Provost Hall said: “I am delighted at the total I have managed to raise so far and extremely grateful to the people and workplaces of Renfrewshire for their generosity.

“My four chosen charities complete incredible work in Renfrewshire and the money raised helps to make a real difference within our communities.

“Passing £25,000 raised is terrific and I am determined to raise as much as possible during my term as Provost. After this year’s skydive I am already thinking of my next big challenge to take on.”

Previous fundraising activities include a Hollywood-themed Charity Ball (raising almost £12,000), a charity abseil from the roof of Renfrewshire House (raising almost £5,000) and a number of working charity challenges with local businesses – Piazza Shopping Centre, Phoenix car dealership, Bridge of Weir Leather and Glasgow Airport (raising £1400).

Renfrewshire Carers’ Centre Manager, Diane Goodman, said: “This is a fantastic achievement by the Provost and will greatly benefit carers in Renfrewshire. We are extremely thankful for her continued fundraising which allows us to support carers in their role and provide them with opportunities to have a life outside of caring through a range of high quality services”

Stephen McClellan, Chief Executive of RAMH, said: “We are deeply grateful to Provost Hall for including RAMH as one of her chosen Charities. Not only will all the money she has generated help us to deliver our services, but she has raised the profile of mental illness through her commitment and dedication. We’re not sure what challenges she has up her sleeve next, but we are looking forward to finding out!’’

Kenneth Mathie, Fundraising Manager at Accord Hospice, said: “‘We at ACCORD are absolutely thrilled to be one of the beneficiaries of the Provost’s on-going charity work, and to have the opportunity of working with three other worthy local causes. We would also like to thank everyone who continues to support this project as their support really makes a difference to our patients and their families.’

Kate Lennon, Chief Executive of St Vincent’s Hospice said, “The Provost has become an invaluable source of support for St Vincent’s Hospice. Not only has she made this wonderful contribution to our funds but she is also very generous in offering her personal support and encouragement for so many of our own fundraising and other activities. Provost Hall’s determination to help local charities like ours is truly remarkable. We send her our congratulations on her fantastic fundraising achievement – and our sincere thanks.”

Global Ambitions for Renfrewshire’s New Businesses


Renfrewshire’s business community has gone global this week, joining 160 other countries and around 10 million people worldwide with a programme of events designed to encourage and celebrate entrepreneurship.

Global Entrepreneurship Week is the world’s largest campaign of its type. Each year, it plays a critical role in encouraging people to consider starting up their own enterprises.


Here, the council’s business support and employability partnership, Invest in Renfrewshire has joined forces with local partners including Business Gateway and Renfrewshire Chamber of Commerce to offer a programme of talks, networking opportunities and seminars for people who have – or are thinking about starting – their own businesses.

Councillor Mark Macmillan, Leader of Renfrewshire Council said; “Renfrewshire has always had a strong entrepreneurial spirit and Invest in Renfrewshire is committed to helping small businesses to flourish here. Many of our Global Enterprise Week’s events will take place in the InCube at 27 High Street, Paisley where 11 young businesses are thriving with a year of practical support from the council.”

This week, Renfrewshire’s enterprising events include sessions about business planning, finance, marketing and managing growth. There are also opportunities to discuss the particular challenges faced by female entrepreneurs and social enterprises.

“Renfrewshire will benefit from the tremendous opportunities that will be generated by £274m City Deal investments in infrastructure, by our town centre regeneration strategies and by the continuing work of Invest in Renfrewshire. This will be fertile ground for young businesses which, in time, will become the cornerstone of our local economy. I’d encourage residents who might be thinking about starting their own enterprises to take advantage of this week’s events and help to build Renfrewshire’s economic future.”

Small business owners and potential entrepreneurs can find encouragement, advice and support from Invest in Renfrewshire. Call 0300 300 1180 to talk to an adviser. To find out more about Renfrewshire’s events during Global Entrepreneurship Week, visit investinrenfrewshire.com.

Paisley gets behind 2021 culture bid


[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Backing for Paisley to be UK City of Culture 2021 has poured in just hours after the town launched its bid in the historic surroundings of Paisley Abbey.

Performances from PACE Youth Theatre Company – who delivered a production specially commissioned for the bid launch – as well as the Grant McFarlane Band and the RockUs Community Choir, showed how culture is thriving in the town.


Broadcaster Shereen Nanjiani, who went to school in Paisley, introduced a group of bid ambassadors which included Councillor Mark Macmillan, Leader of Renfrewshire Council and Chair of the Paisley 2021 Partnership Board; David Wallace, Executive Director of PACE Youth Theatre Company; Bob Davidson, Chief Executive of Renfrewshire Chamber of Commerce; Sharon McAulay and Emma Richardson of the local STAR Project; and newly-appointed Bid Director Jean Cameron.

The identity for the Paisley 2021 bid was unveiled by a group of local school pupils who will be aged 21 in 2021.

Councillor Mark Macmillan said: “There is no single voice for Paisley, we are a community of voices, and that message was delivered loud and clear.

“We are not reinventing Paisley; the bid is utterly authentic. It’s about our historic buildings like the breathtaking Abbey, the famous and the historic cultural figures produced by the town and also the spirit forged on the hard work and enterprise of the women of the mills. Our Paisley 2021 brand encapsulates this, inspired by perhaps the most famous thing we gave the world – the Paisley Pattern.

Now is the time to reach out to our communities across Paisley and Renfrewshire and build this bid.”

He added: “Paisley’s famous weaver poet Robert Tannahill said: ‘When hope persuades, and Fame inspires us, and pride with warm ambitions fires us. Let reason instant seize the bridle’.

“So we are counting on everyone here today to seize that bridle, be Paisley’s ambassadors and to play their part in unlocking Paisley’s potential.”

Backing for the campaign has been flooding in on social media with Twitter users from as far afield as Texas and Thailand following@Paisley2021 and sharing their support with #Paisley2021. A new website outlining the bid went live this morning atwww.paisley2021.co.uk.

Shereen Nanjiani said: “I am a proud Buddie! I am wearing the Paisley Pattern today, and am very proud of the town and its people.”

Bid Director Jean Cameron said: “I grew up in Ferguslie Park, on Tannahill Road, named after Paisley’s famous poet and my belief in the transformational power of culture was nurtured in this town. Now we need to take the message out to the people of Paisley and of Renfrewshire, and our partners further afield, and ultimately, it will be its people who will make it happen for Paisley.”

Sharon McAulay of the STAR Project, one of the bid ambassadors speaking at the event, said: “Paisley is an inspirational, culturally- rich town full of proud people who carry a strong sense of identity and community spirit through good times and tough. A successful bid for City of Culture 2021 will inspire and energise all of our communities.”

Bob Davidson, Chief Executive of Renfrewshire Chamber of Commerce said: “This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to help Paisley become the great place it deserves to be – great for all businesses, their employees and their customers. Having been part of Paisley for over 50 years, the chamber fully supports the Paisley 2021 bid and encourages businesses and organisations of all sizes and sectors to do the same.”

David Wallace of PACE Youth Theatre Company said: “Bidding for UK City of Culture 2021 is an opportunity to celebrate and to develop the already thriving cultural sector here in Paisley and Renfrewshire whilst creating new opportunities for potential national and international cultural partnerships.”

Further endorsements for the campaign were received from:

“The bid will celebrate the diversity of Renfrewshire’s communities and provide an opportunity to remind the rest of the world what Paisley has done, is doing – and will do next!”
Alan McNiven, Chief Executive of Engage Renfrewshire

“Paisley First completely supports the bid for City of Culture status. A successful bid will lead us to re-engage with our prime audience and help us to improve the overall quality of experience in the town centre”.
Sunil Varu, Paisley First

“We can use the process of bidding for UK City of Culture 2021 to leverage social change through cultural regeneration; inspire our artists, musicians and people to tell their stories and demonstrate the depth of cultural engagement we have in the communities we serve.”
Professor Gayle McPherson, Chair in Events and Cultural Policy at University of West of Scotland

“A successful bid from Paisley would highlight the fantastic industrial and commercial heritage that Paisley possesses, how this has contributed to the fabric and skyline of the town and how this business success lives on. Paisley was built on the back of the creative textiles industry and the legacy of this is clear to see in the town.”
Nick Shields, Scottish Enterprise

“Over the years Paisley has raised and taught men and women who have gone on to change the world. Today it remains one of Scotland’s great centres of education, where new generations of young people are equipped with the skills to help them shape the future.”
Audrey Cumberford, West College Scotland

“The announcement of the bid, and indeed the journey and the prize of Paisley City of Culture 2021, is the single most important step that has been made for Paisley. This will put Paisley on the world map where it rightly belongs and will no doubt create a great tourism, education and cultural centre for all to enjoy.”
