I have revived two old sections that seemed to have been misplaced during my redevelopment of the Paisley website, they are the My Toon section which is for your stories about Paisley’s past and also the poems section written by people from Paisley…

Click here for the My Toon section now known as Paisley People

Click here for the poems section now known as Paisley peoms

I hope you like them and would like to add your story or poem to the sections and add to the website archive.

Millarston High rise flats are to come down in the early hours of the morning between Sunday morning 3am till 6am final confirmation is to be seen but these times seem to suit with the main Railway line right beside the Flats being the main obstacle to a successful blow-down.

We wish Reigart all the very best and wish them a successful and safe blow-down and hopefully they don’t wake too many people up lol

For anyone going to see the flats coming down hopefully we will probably meet up and it doesn’t rain..

Look out tomorrow for some video and photos of the demolition.
