Dr Alexandra Mavroeidi

Paisley & District U3A members will remember this 5 November thanks to guest speaker Dr Alexandra Mavroeidi.  Senior lecturer Dr Mavroeidi from the University of Strathclyde is going to share that it’s never too late to keep your bones healthy whatever your age.  Those watching her live zoom talk at 2pm will be invited to put their own questions and discuss these points further in small breakout rooms.

Dr Alexandra Mavroeidi 

Local U3A chair, Kathy O’Donnell commented: “Many of our members are retired from full time work but not from living a full life.  Dr Mavroeidi at the School of Psychological Sciences and Health has scanned all the latest research about bone density and aging.  The evidence clearly shows that if we spend more time standing up than sitting down as we get older, this will strengthen our bones and help our balance.  This is especially important for older people so that we know how best to exercise during the Covid 19 era.”

Dr Alexandra Mavroeidi remarked: “The beneficial effects of regular weight bearing physical activity on bone health are well documented.  What is currently emerging is evidence that breaking up prolonged periods of sedentary behaviour (sitting time) with light activity when physically possible, or at least with standing, also has distinct health benefits for older people.  During this talk, we will explore this topic further with particular reference to bone health.”

TUI LAUNCHES WINTER 2021/22 AND SUMMER 2022 PROGRAMMES FROM GLASGOW AIRPORT AS APPETITE FOR TRAVEL GROWS

tui

13 winter 2021 destinations on sale now
Reintroduction of Naples and Alicante routes for winter 2021
23 destinations on offer from Glasgow Airport for summer 2022
More demand expected for 4 & 5-star all-inclusive hotels with private pools or villas

29 October 2020: TUI UK has launched winter 2021 and 2022 holidays from Glasgow and is set to put summer 2022holidays on sale from 5th November, with thousands of free kids’ places, low deposits from £75 per person and £0 deposit on direct debit bookings made online on offer. This comes as 86% of customers surveyed in September said they expect to have gone on holiday again by next summer – reinforcing the growing appetite for future travel post Covid-19.

With on-going travel corridor uncertainty for some regularfavourites this winter, those craving sunshine during the coldest months have already booked for next winter, with strong demand in particular for Tenerife and Lanzarote so far from the extensive range of 13 destinations on sale from Glasgow Airport. The winter 2021/2022 programme will see the reintroduction of flights to Naples and Alicante, as well as four flights a week to the popular Canary Islands and increased frequency to Majorca.

With 57% of customers saying they expect to book a Mediterranean beach holiday for 2021, TUI anticipates greater demand for summer 2022 as people want to ‘make up’ for not being able to go away this year. So far, Greece is the standout destination of choice based on current bookings for next summer, with Turkey and Egypt also popular, and patterns indicate these trends could continue into 2022.

The summer 2022 programme from Glasgow Airport will see 23 destinations on offer, with increased flying to Naples and Cancun, as well as five weekly flights to Turkey and flights to Florida three times a week during the peak holiday season.

TUI is seeing an upward trend in 4 and 5-star all-inclusive hotel bookings for next summer, with over 40% of customers surveyed expressing this preference. This includes hotels which offer the ‘best of both worlds’ with villas or room options with private pools and accommodation as families in particular seek to continue to feel safe in their ‘bubble’. TUI will be offering 233 different options in 155 hotels for this growing category in summer 2021 and expects this trend to continue for summer 2022.

In the same vein, 18% of customers surveyed said they would look to book a villa holiday with car hire included, making social distancing easier on holiday. TUI is offering 150 villas with flights and car hire included for summer 2021 and summer 2022 in Cyprus, Greece, Turkey, Balearic Islands, Canary Islands, mainland Spain, Portugal, Italy and Florida.  

Richard Sofer, Commercial & Business Development Director at TUI said: Our latest customer survey and booking patterns for next summer indicate that the great British public are looking forward to future holidays even more so as they may have been unable to take one this year. This is why we have launched our future holiday programmes through to the end of October 2022, so that families and couples alike can plan ahead to next year and beyond to make informed choices about what will make their perfect holiday from the wide range we have on offer.”

Paul White, Head of Aviation at Glasgow Airport, said:The launch of TUI’s winter 21/22 and summer 2022 programmes is very welcome news and provides a much-needed confidence boost for our passengers and the industry.

“As well as delivering a huge range of destinations, the programme also brings greater choice and flexibility for customers keen to enjoy a well-earned holiday in 2021 and beyond following the disappointment of not being able to travel this year.”

Plans to open up Paisley town centre car parks for free throughout December are set to be considered by councillors next week.

As part of a drive to support local businesses and encourage people to Spend Local during the festive period, all council-owned car parks in the town centre would be free to park in from 1 December to 3 January.

With the current Coronavirus pandemic causing reduced visitor footfall, Renfrewshire Council is proposing the festive initiative to encourage residents to visit their local town centre and support local businesses.

If the plans are approved, parking would be free in all Paisley off-street council car parks although charges would still apply in on-street spaces.

Renfrewshire Council Leader Iain Nicolson said: “At this time, we want to do all we can to support local businesses in Renfrewshire as we recognise the impact that the Coronavirus pandemic has had on them.

“We’re working hard to support them to access the funding provided by the Scottish and UK Government, as well as creating the £1.3million Renfrewshire Coronavirus Business Support Fund which was developed following detailed discussion with 500 local businesses and provides a package of interest free loans and grants for businesses affected by the pandemic.

“Therefore, by providing free parking in Paisley town centre as part of our Covid-19 response, we would hope to encourage people to shop in the town centre and recognise the value of local products, people and produce at this most difficult of times.”

The offer of free parking would build on the current parking pilot running in Paisley town centre which sees people given their first three hours of parking free at six of the town centre’s car parks, and this pilot was recently extended for six months at the Leadership Board in September.

Councillor Cathy McEwan, Convener of Renfrewshire Council’s Infrastructure, Land and Environment Policy Board, said: “Our businesses need all the support possible during these difficult times and this proposal would give people further opportunity to visit Paisley town centre and spend locally during the festive period.

“The pandemic has made it hard for businesses as they’ve had reduced income and footfall for a sustained period of time so this proposal aims to make it as easy as possible for local people to visit the town centre and give those businesses the much needed support they require.

“Please continue to follow the restrictions in place to avoid any further measures required for Renfrewshire and ensure that retail businesses can remain open in advance of and over the festive period.”

The proposal will be considered by the Infrastructure, Land and Environment Policy Board on Wednesday 4 November 2020.

Paisley First has joined forces with Renfrewshire Council this Christmas for the Paisley town centre Golden Ticket Competition!

Launching this Saturday, 31st October, there’ll be not one, not two but fourteen prizes of £250 of town centre gift vouchers up for grabs!

Receive a Golden Ticket with every purchase in Paisley town centre, post it in one of the Golden Post-boxes in the Piazza Shopping Centre Paisley and The Paisley Centre and you could be one of 14 lucky winners!

Remember, the more you shop, the more Golden Ticket chances you will have!

Colette Cardosi, Chair of Paisley First, said: “Local businesses need your support more than ever so we would urge locals to put Paisley first when it comes to Christmas Shopping.

“We have everything you need for all your Christmas shopping to please even the fussiest recipient and the majority of our businesses across retail, health, hair and beauty and food and drink all sell gift cards if you want to give the gift of choice this Christmas.

“So please shop like your High Street depends on it, because it does!”

Renfrewshire Council Leader Iain Nicolson said: “We encourage residents to support Renfrewshire’s town centre traders by considering how they can Spend Local this festive season.

“Money spent in the local economy stays in the local economy, so by supporting local traders we are supporting each other – and that’s never been more important than this year, when our businesses need your help more than ever.

“The Golden Ticket competition is a great incentive to spend money in Paisley town centre and is just one of the many innovative ways the team at Paisley First are helping showcase the range of great businesses and attractions the town has to offer.”

Draws are currently scheduled to take place in early December, just one of the perks of shopping in Paisley town centre this Christmas!

Love Local, Love Paisley!

Glasgow Airport

Glasgow Airport was today (Wednesday 28 October) named Airport of the Year at the
Scottish Transport Awards for the second year in a row.

Glasgow Airport
The airport was shortlisted for the award alongside Aberdeen International, also part of AGS
Airports Ltd group, and Inverness.
The Scottish Transport Awards looked a little different in 2020. Instead of being announced
in the company of 450+ industry professionals to the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Glasgow in
June, as originally planned, the award winners were announced in a video that was played
during the virtual Scottish Transport Awards Summit.
Mark Johnston, chief operating officer of AGS Airports Ltd, which owns Aberdeen, Glasgow
and Southampton Airports, said: “We are extremely proud to win this award and thrilled to do
so for the second year in a row. It couldn’t come at a better time given the challenges
Glasgow Airport and the wider industry is currently facing.
“Thousands of people from dozens of companies work hard each day across our campus to
ensure Glasgow Airport continues to deliver its unique brand of customer service for our
passengers.
“Like the rest of the country, we’re operating in very difficult circumstances, however, I’m
immensely proud of the fact we’ve remained open and operational throughout this pandemic
to continue to deliver vital air services for our customers. Being named Scottish Airport of the
Year is a welcome boost.”
The Scottish Transport Awards looked a little different in 2020. Instead of being announced
in the company of 450+ industry professionals to the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Glasgow in

The Scottish Transport Awards Summit took place on today as an all-day virtual conference
with over 200 delegates registered.
Cabinet Secretary for Transport, Infrastructure and Connectivity, Michael Matheson, gave the
keynote speech and said: “It was a pleasure to deliver the keynote address at this year's rather
unique Scottish Transport Awards Summit.

“Given the challenges 2020 has brought it was very important to recognise the incredible efforts
and achievements of the transport sector. The leadership and dedication shown in responding to
the Covid-19 pandemic – keeping our key workers and the nation moving safely, is undoubtedly
worthy of thanks and appreciation.
“Regardless of whether you won an award or not, you have all been successful and I am grateful
to all of our unsung heroes for keeping Scotland moving safely during these challenging times.”

Green Halloween

At Halloween about 30 million people in the UK opt to dress up and more than 90 per cent of families will consider buying costumes. However, seven million of those costumes will get thrown out each year, with only a small number getting recycled.

As quoted in the Guardian, Chris Rose of the Fairyland Trust* explained:

“the scariest thing about Halloween now is plastic.”

With its growing popularity, he says “consumers can take action to avoid buying new plastic and still dress up for Halloween by buying from charity shops or re-using costumes, or making their own from non-plastic materials.”

With the majority of costumes sold by popular retailers like Asda and Tesco made from oil-based non-biodegradable fibres like polyester, PVC, nylon and acrylic, the level of textile waste generated by Halloween contributes dramatically to the already staggering 300,000+ tonnes of clothing discarded in UK landfills. Creating an abundance of microplastic pollution.

Creative Alternatives!

Craft your own costume from ReMode’s scraps and fabric donations, as well as simple household items like tin foil, cardboard, laddered tights and old curtains. Autumn is an ideal time of the year to dust off your sewing machine and get creative!

It’s only going to be worn once or twice so don’t go overboard with glues and permanent fixes. Use a needle a thread where you can then – after it’s all over – either keep it as materials for next year’s creation or reclaim the buttons and trims for your craft box, and the rags for household cleaning.

Never put fabrics in your bin – donate to ReMode, charity shops or use your local textile recycle bin.

social security scotland

People will be able to apply for disability assistance in person across Renfrewshire.

People will be able to apply for the Scottish Government’s new disability benefits in the way that is best for them.

Options will include returning a paper form by post, applying over the phone, filling in an online form or getting help from a member of staff based in their local community.

Social Security Scotland, the agency which will administer these benefits on behalf of the Scottish Government, is continuing work to set up this local service.

There will be in excess of 400 local delivery staff providing face to face support across Scotland. This is a substantial increase on the existing Department for Work and Pensions offer, which has under 100 visiting officers for the whole of Scotland.

So far, Social Security Scotland employs four staff in Renfrewshire and has secured space in one location. This will grow as more benefits are introduced and demand increases.

Locations have been identified based on feedback from experience panels and through working alongside community partners including voluntary sector. This will help to identify venues that are easily accessed and many of  our clients already make use of.

Cabinet Secretary for Social Security and Older People, Shirley-Anne Somerville, said:

“Making sure that people are able to apply for benefits in the way that is right for them is one of the absolute fundamentals to ensuring that everyone gets the money that they are entitled to.

“The world is changing and things like the ongoing pandemic are changing the way people access services, with more and more of us looking to do so online. However, we don’t want a service that only works for the majority, it needs to work for everyone. We need to make sure that no one is left behind.

“This is why we are designing a system that gives people choices and makes sure that we take into consideration different accessibility needs – particularly for those looking to apply for disability assistance.

“People will have a range of ways in which they can apply for the disability benefits we will introduce. This includes applying online and also the option to apply in person with one of our specially trained staff located in communities in every council area.

“In setting up this service, we are taking a truly tailored approach. We want to understand the unique needs of local communities. We will continue to work with others to gain this understanding and to make sure that we have people available in the right places and at the right times across Renfrewshire.”
