The Spree Festival

A show by one of Scotland’s top musicians is attracting international interest to a new Paisley festival.

And such has been the interest in the performance by Roddy Frame that ticket buyers from Houston, Renfrewshire, to Houston, Texas, have made the show a sell-out.

The show, in Paisley Abbey on October 27, will be one of the highlights of The Spree, Paisley’s national festival, which takes place from 25-28 October.

Organisers of the inaugural festival, which also features a range of music and comedy acts, are delighted at the response to the Roddy Frame performance which has also attracted gig-goers from Germany and Japan, as well as across the UK and Ireland.

“It’s brilliant to be part of this new festival and to learn that so many fans are willing to travel so far to see the show,” said Roddy Frame.  “I’m also looking forward to performing in a working abbey – that will be a first!”

Lisa Whytock, who is programming the Spree, said:  “We are really excited to see that news of The Spree has spread so quickly across the world.”

The concert goers from Houston in Scotland and Houston in the USA are both long-standing Roddy Frame fans.

Scott MacKay from Houston, Renfrewshire, said: “I was delighted to learn of The Spree festival in Paisley as I have travelled to gigs and festivals all over the UK and it is brilliant to see this level of talent on my doorstep.

“I have also seen Roddy Frame on three previous occasions and it is great that he is coming to see me this time rather than me travelling far to see him.”

Jeffrey Barlow, from Houston, Texas, said:

“Since my first chance to see Roddy perform live (in London, 2002) I’ve tried to attend as many shows as I can. For me The Spree is worth a trip ‘across the pond’ to enjoy the energy, passion, and genius he delivers when performing live.

“This will be my fifth trip to the UK, and eighth live show to see Roddy.

“I saw his concert in Glasgow at the Old Fruit Market in 2006 and have wanted to return to Glasgow since then.  Another reason for making the trip is that my birthday falls on 28 October, so for me this all too rare live show from Roddy is like a birthday gift.”

The four venues to host the events include a specially erected Spiegeltent at County Square, Paisley Abbey, Wynd Centre and Paisley Arts Centre. Roddy Frame’s concert will be held in Paisley Abbey.

Tickets are now on sale for the festival and can be bought through Ticket Scotland and Renfrewshire Council’s box office-  www.tickets-scotland.com / www.renfrewshire.gov.uk/thespree.

Two Rivers Music Festival this Saturday the 4th August in County Square 12pm – 8pm. (see Poster for details)

Renfrewshire’s Recruits took to the catwalk with not one but two fashion shows in a busy Paisley shopping centre to raise money for charity.

The 45 young people taking part in this year’s Recruit programme were given the task of planning and staging their own fashion show on a busy Saturday afternoon in Paisley’s Piazza Shopping Centre.

The teams had to plan and source every detail of their show from the music, clothes, hair and make-up.

They were also then tasked with taking part in a special Piazza fashion show with each team being allocated a store within the centre whose new in-store clothes they had to promote.

Choreographer Susanne McNeil helped the Recruits master their moves for the catwalk and came along to mark them on the day.

They were also supported by two stylists from James Martin Hairdressing of Causeyside Street in Paisley, who helped style the Recruits’ hair on the day to match their themes.

The Recruit is a council-run youth employment project loosely based on telly favourite The Apprentice, which sees young hopefuls compete through a series of business-based challenges, with jobs on offer for the winners.

The hugely-popular programme has taken place in Renfrewshire since 2010, but this summer sees two editions running simultaneously – one for S5/6 pupils, and another for unemployed 16-19-year-olds.

A winning team was named from each of the two groups.

Team Skyline won from the 16-19 programme. Taryn McGrath, 18, said: “The day was very stressful and my team members were very nervous beforehand. However, after getting on the catwalk it was amazing and my nerves went away. My team would carry out the Fashion Show everyday if we could!”

From the fifth and sixth year programme, Team InCepto were named winners.

Daniel Carroll, 17, said: “I had an amazing time at the Fashion Show and it was a great experience. I thought everyone did exceptionally well and should feel so proud of themselves for raising money for such a worthy cause.”

As well as running and performing in the fashion shows, the Recruits collected donations for charity from the audience. All money raised on the day will go to the Children’s Hospice Association Scotland (CHAS).

The race is on! 10k winners announced as event gets closer

With three weeks to go until the Paisley Vision 10k and Fun Run, eight lucky winners have snapped up free registration to the major sporting event.

Event sponsors MEPC Hillington Park made the winning draw and Councillor Iain McMillan, Convener of Renfrewshire Council’s Community and Family Care Policy Board, was on hand to congratulate the budding runners.

Councillor McMillan said: “My congratulations go to the lucky winners. It was a pleasure to meet them and we were able to share some running tips as we’ll all be taking part in the event. The 10k is flat, fast and takes competitors through the historic town centre, along Paisley canal and Kilmacolm cycle track. It’s a fantastic route.

“With just over three weeks to go, I’d urge as many local people as possible to sign up to take part. Why not take part as a family or a larger group? And if you’re not sure about doing the 10k – there’s the Fun Run as well. This year’s event is shaping up to be best yet, so don’t miss out.”

The event takes place on Sunday 26 August at 10am. Last year around 1,600 people took part. The Fun Run starts at 12.15pm.

Grant Edmondson, Managing Director of MEPC Hillington Park (event sponsors) said: “MEPC is delighted to sponsor one of Renfrewshire’s most prestigious sporting events. I would encourage everyone to take part or support the runners in some way. Best of luck to all involved”

MEPC gave 500 staff at its occupying companies the chance to take part in the draw. The winners are:
– John McGeady: Centri Force Engineering Co Ltd
– Graeme Fleming: Caledonian Industries Ltd
– Paul O’Brian: National Milk Labs
– Ewan Fisher: Haven Products Ltd
– Louise Cullen: Balfour Beatty Engineering Services Ltd
– Tracey McKenna: BAA (Business Support Centre Ltd)
– Viki Wilkinson: Cromwell
– Mandy McAulay: Johnson Construction UK Ltd

This year runners will also raise the profile of Renfrewshire as a Fairtrade Zone by sporting Fairtrade cotton t-shirts sponsored by MEPC Hillington Park– that is also Renfrewshire’s Fairtrade Flagship employer.

The next event for www.facebook.com/groups/FacebayFundraising/ (find us on facebook) is a sponsored cycle, starting at Millport on 4th August 2012 to raise money for MacMillan Cancer Support.
Meeting point is at the Largs Ferry Terminal at 12 midday, where we will be catching the ferry across to Millport where the sponsored cycle will begin. The route round the island measures 10.5 miles but it is up to participants how far they want to go.

Everyone is welcome to join me, Irene McDonald, the creator of Facebay Fundraising and event organiser, and several others raise money for MacMillan Cancer Support. Sponsor sheets are available on request, please email irenemcdonald@live.co.uk with your contact details to request one.

So far we have raised over £2,000.00 for MacMillan from the site and events we have organised, everyone is welcome to join the group and be a part of its success.
We have five charities which we support through the Facebay group: MACMILLAN CANCER SUPPORT, Alzheimer Scotland, R.A.H CHILDRENS WARD, PDSA and (MND) Motor Neurone Disease.

How the group works: People advertise their unwanted items to the site, e.g. household items, clothes, toys – anything which can be of use to someone in need.  The donation for the items bought goes to one of the charities above, whichever one the donor chooses. Please help spread the word about this group as it’s for a good cause, helping both people who don’t have much and good causes.

The TA Hall Paisley

The Territorial Army Hall in Paisley is one of the finest looking buildings in the town and one which has been left to rot, inside and out.

The former TA Hall which is on sale through Colliers International was once the place where many a civilian signed on to join the regular and territorial army, and has even been a nightclub.

At the beginning of 2012 we checked the building as we had heard it was not secure and had reports of vandals and fire raising inside the property. We spoke to MSP George Adam who contacted the police and owners to secure the building and this was done immediately and from the front it has looked pretty secure, until we heard an update recently.

Unfortunately one of the less accessible doors was not secured and vandals managed to get access. Sadly the inside of the building has been damaged extensively. From what we can see the drill hall has had various fires and the glass panelled roof has been smashed and water damage is rife through the whole area, the classrooms and firing range have been stripped of metals and pipes and some of the roof has had the lead stripped but thankfully not beyond repair.

We put the images on Facebook and asked for people to re-post them and let people know of the damage, and to see if we could get people to sit up and notice of what was happening under our own noses. After all the building is just at the end of the High Street and across from the West of Scotland University, who incidentally once owned the building.

Immediately after we posted in Facebook, MSP George Adam contacted us and said he had been in contact with Colliers International and the police, and they assured him that the building will be made secure and that he will be kept informed.

Mr Adam has been brilliant and instrumental along with Paisley.org.uk in trying to save this building from going to rack and ruin. We Buddies need to save our older fine buildings from becoming a pile of rubble and with the support of the wider community we can do just this.

Paisley has launched a joint bid to become an official Festival Town for 2013.

Renfrewshire Council and the Creative Renfrewshire Network have teamed up to submit a joint bid to Creative Scotland for a Creative Place Award.

The Creative Place Awards aim to celebrate the value of creativity to the social and economic wellbeing of smaller communities across Scotland.

If successful, the town will receive funding to support events and activities that will further enhance the cultural life of the area.

The award will allow the council and the Creative Renfrewshire Network (CRN) to continue to work in partnership to further develop Paisley as a festival town, developing and showcase a programme of national events.

Renfrewshire Council Leader Mark Macmillan said: “Paisley already has a rich cultural heritage and thriving arts scene. The council is committed to supporting and building on this by working with the Creative Renfrewshire Network and local cultural organisations. This bid is a really exciting opportunity to further develop that relationship and enhance our shared vision of Paisley as a creative place.

“Over the last few years we’ve worked together to bring a wide programme of events to the area from the Voices in Paisley choral festival to the Renfrewshire Witch Hunt 1697 event. Next year is set to be even bigger with the Royal National Mod coming to Paisley for the first time, as well as further major arts festivals such as The Spree.

“We want to build on this opportunity to cement the area’s already strong reputation for arts and events and establish Paisley as an official Festival Town for 2013.”

In addition to hosting the Royal National Mod in 2013, Paisley would use the award to host additional flagship festivals.

The council’s cultural strategy was launched in 2010 along with the Creative Renfrewshire Network with the aim of recognising and celebrating the unique cultural strands of different communities in Renfrewshire.
David Wallace, Chair of Creative Renfrewshire Network, said: “The Creative Renfrewshire Network seeks to represent the many diverse and vibrant cultural organisations and individuals in Renfrewshire. As such, we fully support this exciting bid which has the potential to develop and enhance the already wide programme of cultural events and activities taking place in Paisley and being delivered by our membership and by the Council. This is a great example of partnership working between local organisations and the local authority and we would look forward to seeing the benefits to those organisations and the wider community should the bid to Creative Scotland be successful.”

Pope Benedict XVI has appointed Bishop Philip Tartaglia as Archbishop of Glasgow. The new Archbishop will succeed Most Rev Mario Joseph Conti, who has been Archbishop since 22 February 2002.

Commenting on the appointment the new Archbishop-Elect said: “I am conscious of the historic place of the Archdiocese of Glasgow in the history of Christianity in Scotland and of its importance for the Catholic community in particular. It is a great honour for me to be appointed Archbishop of my native city and diocese.”

Bishop Philip also said “I have been very happy as Bishop of Paisley and I will be ever grateful to the clergy and people of the diocese for their kindness to me. I hope I will get the chance to say farewell to you in an appropriate fashion before I take up my new post.”

Until he takes up his new appointment, Bishop Philip is the Diocesan Administrator of the Diocese of Paisley. On his installation as Archbishop the College of Consultors would be expected to meet to appoint a Diocesan Admnisitrator, who will be in place until the appointment of a new Bishop.
