Apologies to anyone trying to access the website last night and early this morning, we seem to have had a wee server glitch and our backup system kicked in.. Unfortunately our backup system does not have an up to date database for our blog and message board to work. We will solve this so in the event of the website going offline again you should notice only minor changes.

if you have sent an email to anyone on the website over the last day and a bit and have not heard back, then please re-send your email and we will be in touch as soon as possible…

Also we will be moving back to our normal host asp and the website may go offline for a few hours, hopefully we will keep disruption to a minimal time.

Thanks once again for your patience.

I have been doing a wee nighttime course at Paisley University eherm sorry its now known as The University of the West of Scotland “doesn’t have the same ring to it” anyways the course is not just for my benefit its also to the websites benefit too and hopefully you will agree..

I have been out most Saturdays with the course taking photos all around the town and in this shot you can see that I have edited one of my images for the course and also for the Paisley websites gallery.

Please check out the new reworked gallery especially if you had trouble before, the new one is faster and easier to use, so please click on gallery on the menu above.

Sma Shot day 2008 is on the 5th July 2008 will begin at 11am and leaves Brodie Park on its way down to Abbey Close in the town and hopefully Tony Lawler will lead the parade with a replica of the Charelston Drum.

A wealth of stalls, funfairs, street theatre and onstage entertainment – including a re-enactment of the Sma’ Shot Story by local youth theatre PACE, ‘Loud ‘n’ Proud’ celebrating the ‘Charleston Drum’ with a drumming extravaganza and the ‘Burning of the Cork’ – will ensure that the day will be a memorable one.

Paisley Town has never looked so good and its not just one person that contributes to the gallery, you do…. So if you have taken a picture of Paisley or have an old school photo from long ago then write an email to and we will send you directions on how to upload to our gallery and start contributing to the Paisley community website today.
