Renfrewshire Council Press Release:
Jingle Bell Fun Run

Hundreds of runners in festive fancy dress took to the streets of Paisley this weekend for Renfrewshire’s annual Jingle Bell Run.

Runners donned their Santa hats as well as their trainers to take part in the 3km fun run on Saturday 5 December.

Provost Celia Lawson officially started the race on Abbey Close outside Paisley town hall while inside Accord Hospice ran a Christmas craft fayre.

Provost Lawson said: “This was our second year holding the Jingle Bell Run and it really is a great festive family event. It’s lovely to see all the runners in their Christmas outfits as well as their family and friends out supporting them in Paisley town centre.”

The Jingle Bell Run is part of Renfrewshire Council’s Active Renfrewshire campaign which aims to give people more opportunities to get active.

Councillor Susan McDonald, Renfrewshire Council’s Sports Champion, said: “There are so many different ways for people to lead active lifestyles and as well as the health benefits the important thing is that they enjoy themselves. Events like the Jingle Bell run are a fun way to take part in a physical activity and it is something that people of all ages can do either on their own or with friends and family. Active Renfrewshire is about making it easier for people to try new sports or keep up an active hobby by providing as many different opportunities as possible.”

Millarston High rise flats are to come down in the early hours of the morning between Sunday morning 3am till 6am final confirmation is to be seen but these times seem to suit with the main Railway line right beside the Flats being the main obstacle to a successful blow-down.

We wish Reigart all the very best and wish them a successful and safe blow-down and hopefully they don’t wake too many people up lol

For anyone going to see the flats coming down hopefully we will probably meet up and it doesn’t rain..

Look out tomorrow for some video and photos of the demolition.
