SHOPPERS must have thought they had walked through the doors of the intu Braehead mall on Saturday and landed in a galaxy far, far away.

They were met with the sight of characters from all kinds of films, TV shows and comics having a look round the shops.

Thousands of sci-fi fans turned out for the Film and Comic Con event being held in The Arena at intu Braehead.

Many fans were dressed in the costumes of their favourite sci-fi characters and they certainly caught the attention of shoppers in and around the malls.

They also flocked to hundreds of stalls set up in The Arena to snap up movie memorabilia and sought-after rare comics.

The event continues tomorrow (Sunday) when even more fans are expected to come along.

Marketing manager for intu Braehead, David Lyon said: “Where else but intu Braehead would Darth Vader, Stormtroopers, Spiderman and Superman come for a weekend’s shopping when they visit planet Earth?

“This Film and Comic Con is one of the most eye-catching events we have at intu Braehead and we look forward to it every year.

“Shoppers just love to see the fans dressed in their amazing costumes and you just never know who you’re going to bump into!”

Glasgow Airport, as most other airports in UK, saw a massive increase of the passengers passing through. We’re looking at record numbers here. 29 June was the busiest-ever June day, with 38,000 passengers going through the airport.

What does this mean for parents traveling with children? We’re looking at a very busy environment that may trigger anxiety for your kid. Maybe your kid doesn’t suffer from social anxiety and you’re not worried, but you should know that extreme crowds can be overwhelming nevertheless. It’s important for you to stay calm and make your kid feel as secure as possible.

Fortunately, Glasgow airport provides an adequate environment for that. Instead of going unprepared and wondering what to do while you’re waiting, you can simply go through this guide and save yourself and your kid from loads of stress.

 

  • Keep the Babycare Facilities to Mind

 

If you need to change your baby and you’d like some privacy during the process, you can get it at Glasgow Airport. You’ll find several baby-changing areas, and all of them are clearly indicated at the airport’s website.

No matter where you are at the moment, you can easily locate such a facility nearby, without the need to change floors or walk too far.

 

  • If You Have More Time, Benefit from the Play Area

 

You’ll find puzzle tables on different locations at the airport, so you can easily entertain your kid while waiting. If you want real entertainment, however, it’s smart to go to the children’s play area. The Kids Zone, located right after gate 27 on the west pier, is a soft play area that’s free of charge.

When you allow your kid to have fun while waiting, they won’t perceive the flight as something scary. Plus, play will get them a bit tired, so they will be ready for a nap as soon as they get on the plane.

 

  • Feel Free to Eat at a Restaurant

 

Glasgow Airport gives you plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from. Most of them will offer high chairs for your kids, as well as kid-friendly menus. If you need to heat your own baby food or milk, just ask for hot water from the catering outlets and they will provide it for you.

From personal experience, it’s extremely important to get some comfort while eating at an airport. I was transiting through Glasgow Airport and I had three hours to spend there, so a restaurant was definitely on the menu. I picked a random one, asked for a high chair, fed the kid, and did my thing writing for a book reviews service while she was taking a nap.

We managed to get a lot out of those three hours, and the comfortable setting made that possible. I recommend planning this part of your trip way ahead. Glasgow Airport gives you a clear list of restaurants and bars at its website, so it’s easy to make a choice beforehand.

 

  • Bring a Small, Easily Portable Stroller

 

The umbrella-style, fully collapsible stroller is the perfect choice for traveling with your kid. But it’s quite difficult to fold it on your own if you’re traveling alone and you have to hold the baby while doing that. So make sure to get a really light stroller that you can fold and unfold with one hand.

You’re allowed to take a small foldable stroller with you on the plane, but make sure to inform yourself about the dimensions. Different airlines have different rules. Keep in mind that if it goes over dimensions, the foldable stroller will replace the child’s hand baggage allowance.

As for the car seat, it depends on the carrier. Most flights that leave the UK allow adults to hold children in their lap, if they are up to two years of age. But this is not the safest option, given the fact that turbulence can come out of the blue. It’s important to check the guidelines by the airline and see if you can reserve a seat with a carrycot position.

 

Traveling with children is never easy. You worry about their safety and comfort, and you constantly get mean looks from the other passengers. Glasgow Airport makes the experience as convenient as possible for you. It’s important to know your options and organize your transit before you get there.

Gavin Newlands, SNP MP for Paisley and Renfrewshire North, has met with a local energy efficiency agency to find out more about the latest work they’re doing to help people in Renfrewshire who are living in fuel poverty.

Local Energy Action Plan (LEAP) operate across Renfrewshire and offer a range of services to local people to help them reduce their energy use and also to help lift them out of fuel poverty.

The Member of Parliament for Paisley and Renfrewshire North also spoke to them about the hundreds of households in the constituency who were mis-sold energy efficiency measures by the discredited HELMS.

HELMS have now gone into liquidation. They were an approved Green Deal installer, with the Green Deal programme being the flagship policy of the UK Government.

Gavin Newlands, SNP MP for Paisley and Renfrewshire North, said:

“It was great to catch up with Scott from LEAP today to find out more about their latest work across Renfrewshire to help households reduce their energy use.

“LEAP plays an important role in helping to lift people out of fuel poverty, and they’re one of the reasons why the fuel poverty rating in Renfrewshire is lower than the national average.

“I also appreciated speaking to LEAP about HELMS’ mis-selling, this is an issue which I have been working on over the past couple of months. Hundreds of people from across Renfrewshire have been thrown into debt due to the scandalous behaviour of HELMS. HELMS may now be out of business, but they were an accredited Green Deal company, and as such, the UK Government has a responsibility for helping those in Renfrewshire who were exploited by this discredited company.

“However, in the meantime, LEAP can offer a range of excellent energy advice to households across Renfrewshire. They have a solid track record of being able to help people and I would encourage all local constituents to get in touch with them to find out how you can reduce your energy use and help save on your fuel bills.

Scott Duncan, Project Manager from LEAP, said:

“It was great to be able to catch-up with Gavin Newlands MP to highlight the important work that we’re doing in the area. Our staff and volunteers work hard to help lift people out of fuel poverty and to assist households to minimise their energy use. We work in a number of the towns and villages in Renfrewshire and happy to provide a range of energy advice to local households.”

Gavin Newlands, SNP MP for Paisley and Renfrewshire North, has welcomed new statistics which show that a record number of students from Scotland’s most disadvantaged areas have successfully gained a place at university.

The UCAS figures show the number of prospective students from the 20% most deprived areas – SIMD 20 – successfully getting a place at a UK university has risen by 5% to a new record level for all ages and by 9% for 18 year olds, taking the increase for 18 year olds to 21% since 2016. This comes alongside UCAS reporting a 3.1% fall in the total number of 18-year-olds in the overall population of Scotland.

This year the total number of Scottish students getting a place at a Scottish university has also hit a new record high of 28,970, up 4%.

Gavin Newlands, SNP MP for Paisley and Renfrewshire North, said:

“University should be an option for everyone regardless of their background or their circumstances. We still have a road to travel to ensure that everyone has an equal chance of accessing a university education. However, these figures show that Scotland is making good progress on widening access with the number of students from Scotland’s most deprived areas accepted into university increasing to a record high for the third year in a row.

“Universities could learn a lot on this from our local university, the University of the West of Scotland, which is leading the sector in recruiting students from some of the most deprived backgrounds.

“We still have work to do on this, but progress is being made and we’re on the right track. Good luck to all those new students who are about to start their studies in September.

It might be a few weeks until Paisley Pirates fans have the chance to see their favourites back on the ice, but that’s not stopping them from getting right behind the team as the Supporters Club continues to use the close season to raise vital funds to help keep the Pirates on the ice.

paisley pirates

Supporters Club Chairwoman Marie Cadenhead explained, “Over the close season the club committee has been streamlined, but that hasn’t stopped us from pushing ahead with the fundraising which nowadays is as essential for keeping the main club on the ice as any other activity.”

 

“We know as well how important it is too for the Pirates to be seen in the community which they’re very much part of. We took part in the Barshaw Gala Day towards the end of June, organized a bag pack in Morrison’s at the beginning of July which raised a lot of money, we’ve got a stall at the Ferguslie Open Day on Saturday 11 August, and we’ve got a bunch of supporters taking part in the annual Fun Run organized by the local council on Sunday 19 August.”

 

“There’s none of us will ever be described as athletes, but we’ve had a lot of fun taking part in it in previous years, as well as raising a bucketful of cash for the club funds, and we’re hoping to do the same this year. We’ve set up a JustGiving page at www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/paisley-pirates for anyone able and willing to support those folk who will maybe not be running, the whole distance (3k) on the day, but will certainly be attempting a fast stroll around the town centre on the day. We’re hoping supporters will feel able to take part in the Fun Run, there’s still time to register. It is certainly a lot of fun, as the title suggests, and from our perspective it gives us another opportunity to take part in a community activity and raise money at the same time.”

 

“It’s not too long now until the main event for us, namely, seeing the Pirates back on the ice, gets underway, and we know it makes a big difference to the club management and players to know the supporters are backing us by bringing in much needed cash. It costs more than people maybe think to keep the show on the road, when you consider costly items like booking buses for far away road trips, so contributors to the cause, either in donations to the page, or by taking part in the event, know that every penny raised goes to help the Pirates, Renfrewshire’s only senior ice hockey team.”

Offices to let at Mirren Business Centres in a variety of sizes available starting from small offices for a couple of staff up to whole floors of around 2300 sqft.
