Modfest at the paisley Spree 20.10.18-0597

The ever-popular ModStuff Scooter Rideout at this year’s Spree festival is being sponsored by the area’s destination brand Paisley.is…and local businesses are being invited to the party.

As part of the deal for Paisley.is to become headline ModStuff sponsors, event organisers LNP Promotions were invited to pick some local traders to be named as sponsors of the individual awards.

This year’s ModStuff takes place in The Spiegeltent on Saturday 12 October with a free afternoon show featuring the now-legendary scooter rideout, followed by a sold-out evening show. Paisley Vespa Scooter Club are organising and hosting the Scooter Rideout and Competition in aid of Renfrewshire Carers Centre.

LNP chose the following on the basis of their contribution to the town: Burger and Keg, Castelvecchi, Jewelfare, the Bungalow, the Old Swan, and Café Malatso.

Each one of the businesses will present an award on the day and receive tickets for the sold-out ModStuff evening show or another Spree show for a prize draw for their customers. Pop into each shop or follow them on social media for details of how to enter the prize draws.

The spectacle of up to 100 scooters gathering outside the iconic Spiegeltent before riding off round the town is one of many great reasons to visit Paisley in the weeks ahead as the area’s busy winter events programme kicks in.

Paisley.is was launched last year by Renfrewshire Council to promote everything that makes Paisley and Renfrewshire a great place to visit, live and invest – and www.paisley.is is the go-to place for what’s on in the area.

Gary Kerr of LNP Promotions said: “We are delighted to team up with Paisley.is as headline sponsors of this year’s ModStuff – which has allowed us to give something back to a small selection of the many businesses who add value to the town. LNP wanted to recognise their contribution of those businesses to Paisley and highlight the value they place on community and customer service.”

Renfrewshire Council’s head of communications, marketing and events Louisa Mahon said: “Paisley town centre is home to a great variety of shops, cafés and restaurants that provide a wonderful welcome to visitors and locals alike. We want everyone who visits Paisley, or lives or learns here, to Spend Local and support traders who go the extra mile every day and are huge supporters of events in the town.

“Through Paisley Is, we want to recognise their contribution and are delighted to get behind LNP Promotions at ModStuff 2019 and share sponsorship of the Scooter awards. ModStuff is a highlight of the annual Spree festival and attracts a great audience from all over Scotland. This is a perfect platform to highlight what makes Paisley unique and say thank you to some of the traders who make Paisley great”.

Since its launch in March 2018, Paisley Is has achieved almost 500 million opportunities to hear and see something positive about the town through local, national and international media, and our events programme has gone from strength to strength with over 160,000 people attending events in the town.

Renfrewshire Council recently launched a Spend Local campaign to encourage residents, visitors and staff to support businesses based in the area. For more info see www.renfrewshire.gov.uk/spendlocal
