LH Regional

Glasgow Airport lands direct Lufthansa service to Düsseldorf

Glasgow Airport is to further strengthen its route network after Lufthansa Regional confirmed it will launch a direct service to Düsseldorf in April 2013.

LH RegionalIt is the first time Glasgow Airport will have served Düsseldorf, which is located in the heart of the prosperous Rhine-Ruhr region, in 20 years and the launch of the route will also mark the return of the Lufthansa network to Glasgow.

Lufthansa Regional will initially operate six flights per week with the inaugural flight taking off on 8 April 2013 and it will increase to a daily service week commencing 24 June 2013.

Amanda McMillan, managing director of Glasgow Airport, said: “The introduction of Lufthansa Regional’s Düsseldorf service is fantastic news for Glasgow Airport as not only will it result in a direct, daily flight to one of the wealthiest regions in Europe, our passengers will once again have access to the extensive onward connectivity offered by the Lufthansa network.

“Both Düsseldorf and Glasgow are economic powerhouses in their own right and whilst there will undoubtedly be strong demand for this service from within the business community, it will prove a big draw for leisure travellers and has huge potential to generate significant in-bound tourism for Glasgow.

“If we are to further enhance Scotland’s global connectivity then Glasgow must have links with European hubs such as Düsseldorf and we are looking forward to working with Lufthansa to ensure the success of this route.”

Councillor Gordon Matheson, Leader of Glasgow City Council and Chair of Glasgow City Marketing Bureau, said: “Lufthansa Regional’s new route between Düsseldorf and Glasgow, which has been supported through the council’s Air Route Development Fund, is a major boost for the city. Germany represents the largest international market for Glasgow with more than 71,000 trips made each year by German visitors who generate more than £19 million for the local economy.

“The benefits of this new service are two-fold. Firstly, it presents us with a significant opportunity to grow short-break leisure tourism from Germany. Secondly, increased access is a key driver in attracting more delegates to the conferences that meet in Glasgow and this vastly improves the city’s international competitiveness by providing passengers with greater worldwide connectivity through the Lufthansa network.

“Landing this new service has been the result of strong partnership working in recent months, which has included Glasgow City Marketing Bureau, Glasgow Airport, the German Consulate in Glasgow, Glasgow Chamber of Commerce and VisitScotland. It is through this partnership approach that we will continue to develop sustainable airline routes into Glasgow – ensuring that Glasgow International Airport remains Scotland’s leading business and leisure gateway – and connect the city to the global marketplace.”

Stuart Patrick, Chief Executive of Glasgow Chamber of Commerce, said: “This is really excellent news. It gives Glasgow direct flight access to one of the most important industrial centres of Germany in North Rhine Westphalia with an 18 million population, including four of Germany’s largest cities – Dusseldorf, Cologne, Dortmund and Essen – and nine of the top 20 urban centres in the country.

“From a business perspective, the Ruhr-Rhine region is one of the best known industrial centres in the world with many leading German companies like ThyssenKrupp headquartered there. We congratulate the team at Glasgow Airport on securing another important trading connection to add to many others – such as the Emirates double daily route to Dubai – that they have won this year.”

Lufthansa is a founding member of the Star Alliance network which was established in 1997 as the first truly global airline alliance to offer worldwide reach, recognition and seamless service to the international traveller. Overall, the Star Alliance network offers more than 21,900 daily flights to 1,329 airports in 194 countries.

Lufthansa Regional’s direct flights to Dusseldorf are currently on sale at www.lufthansa.com.

Bears by Sue Quinn,

Sue Quinn is a long established and award winning creator of traditionally styled jointed Teddy Bears and other animals. Her bears, hedgehogs, rabbits, squirrels, mice & other friends are sought by collectors worldwide.

They are mostly sold at specialist fairs and shops around the UK, but they are entirely made in Sue’s Paisley studio at 7 Hunter Street, where she has been based for the past 8 years or so, and where visitors are welcome to come and have a look at her creations.

Made to her own designs, Sue uses only top quality natural fabrics such as luxury mohairs, silks and alpacas for the bears themselves. Some are dressed in outfits (also made by Sue) using where possible vintage cottons and tweeds. Bears can also be made from or dressed in customer’s own fabrics – perhaps a favourite child’s dress for example.

 

These are not cheap throwaway children’s toys. They are intended as gifts that can be treasured for a long time. Prices start at £25.
If you already have an old favourite but worn out teddy bear that has seen better days, Sue also provides a repair service that can sympathetically restore your bear to something like it’s previous glory, without altering it’s character.

The studio is usually open weekdays from 10.00 to 15.00 (closed Thursdays), and at other times by appointment only. It’s best to contact Sue first if travelling a distance to avoid disappointment.

Renfrewshire_Council_ezg_1

Festive bin collection details released

Renfrewshire Council’s bin collection services will continue as normal over the festive period – apart from on Christmas and New Year’s days.

Residents who normally have their bins collected on Tuesdays – the day on which December 25 and January 1 falls – are being asked to put them out on the preceding Saturday (the 22nd and 29th) instead.

Renfrewshire_Council_ezg_1All other collection days for the grey/blue bins will continue as normal over the Christmas/New Year period.

If services are disrupted because of bad weather, residents should put out their bins on the usual day and they will be collected as soon as possible.

Information about disruption will be available on the council’s website at www.renfrewshire.gov.uk

Residents will receive a leaflet through their doors with details of how bin collections will be affected during the festive season.

Councillor Jim Harte, Convener of Renfrewshire Council’s Environment and Infrastructure Policy Board, is asking residents to help make it a green Christmas by remembering to recycle.

He said: “You may end up with more household waste than usual over the festive period, and we hope people will recycle as much of it as they can.

“People in Renfrewshire are now recycling more than ever, and we are grateful for your help with this, at all times of the year.

“Residents can use their blue bins for any paper, plastic, unbroken glass or cardboard – which means you can recycle wrapping paper, bottles, cardboard and plastic packaging and Christmas cards.

“Any items such as old electrical equipment and household appliances can be taken to one of the council’s six household waste recycling centres.

“These will be open as usual, other than on Christmas and New Year’s days, when they will be closed.”

Residents will also be able to recycle their Christmas trees between 6 and 13 January at the following places: Barshaw Park and Underwood Road recycling centre, both Paisley; Thomas Shanks Park, Johnstone; Barwood Park, Erskine, and Lochwinnoch Public Park.

Renfrewshire Council to host welfare reform summit

Renfrewshire Council is hosting a high level summit to coordinate efforts to help thousands of local people cope with the estimated £22million loss in benefits they are expected to suffer because of changes in the welfare system.

The summit, involving housing associations, charities and voluntary organisations, is being held at India of Inchinnan on Tuesday 11 December.

Renfrewshire_Council_ezg_1During the summit Renfrewshire Council will present its plans for preparing the community to cope with what has been described as “a tidal wave of benefit cuts.” Lyn Kilpatrick from the Chartered Institute of Housing and John Campbell of Rights Advice Scotland will give the views of housing and advice services professionals.

The event will also feature workshops where organisations will have the opportunity to highlight their preparations and consider what else needs to be done.

Councillor Mike Holmes, Renfrewshire Council’s Welfare Reform spokesperson, said: “Renfrewshire residents are facing a tidal wave of benefit cuts. The changes being made by the UK Government will see 2,900 local working-age households affected by new under-occupancy rules.

“Over 2,000 working-age disabled people will also lose out when Disability Living Allowance is replaced by Personal Independence Payments.

“The under-occupancy rules alone could see local council and housing association tenants lose more than £1.8million of housing benefit. Disabled people, tenants in social and private housing, and families on working tax credits are going to be hit hardest, with many of them facing not one but several of these changes at once.

“The council is already working hard to make sure Renfrewshire residents know about the changes and how they are likely to be affected by them. This seminar is a vital part of those preparations. We are keen to work with our partners wherever possible to support local residents. The Welfare Reform summit will be an important opportunity for us to get together and discuss a joined up approach.

“Concerted, proactive measures are needed to minimise the damage that these far reaching changes are likely to inflict on the welfare safety net.”
Under-occupancy rules, or ‘the bedroom tax’, will introduce new rates of housing benefit that take into account the size of each property. Where people are considered to have more rooms than they need their housing benefit will be reduced.

The UK Government is also handing over responsibility for lifeline support such as community care grants and crisis loans to local authorities while reduced the funding available. Families working less than 24 hours a week will also lose out on Working Tax Credits.

Information about the imminent changes is also available on Renfrewshire Council’s website and Facebook page. Staff training is also being carried out to ensure key groups of council employees can advise the public of changes that might affect them and where they can get support.

More information about the changes is available on 0300 300 0288 and online at www.renfrewshire.gov.uk/benefitchanges
