Paisley Newsletter 5th November

Welcome to the Paisley Newsletter, The main fireworks event is out of the way with the Paisley Daily Express and Council quoting 20,000 people attended the event… Well I couldn’t say for certain as my position overlooking the Town Hall and Paisley Abbey meant I could only see the crowds in Dunn Square and the place was packed.. It might not have been like this though with our furious attempt to let people know the event was still going ahead as rumours had spread it was cancelled due to the weather as it was pouring down.

Paisley Fireworks Photographs 2013.

The Paisley Fireworks event this year was on probably the wettest night of the year but luckily the event didn’t become a damp squib. There were rumours on social media of the event being cancelled during the day, so after a frantic flurry of phone calls and social media postings we managed to inform as many people as possible that the event was still on. The referee at St Mirren Park didn’t get the memo though as the game between St Mirren and Ross County was abandoned, just around the same time that Renfrewshire Council officials confirmed the display in Paisley would still go ahead.

Photographers from Paisley on the web were still in town braving the non stop rain to capture some excellent photographs of the days’ events, hosted by Clyde 1′s Gina McKie and including some great young local talent on stage.
