We are really sorry to let you know that we are cancelling Saturday’s Fireworks event in Paisley. This is due to severe wind gusts and rain forecast for tomorrow and the rest of the weekend, which make it impossible for us to deliver the event safely.

We have been monitoring the situation closely and have taken the advice from our display contractor, health and safety and the event advisory group. Paisley Fireworks is one of the highlights of our event year and we know lots of people will be very disappointed.

We want to give local people and all of our supporters as much time as possible to change their plans and we hope to see everyone back in Paisley on Saturday the 17th for our fabulous Christmas Light Switch On. Please take care if you are out and about this weekend.

Final plans are set to be publicly unveiled in September 2017. “We were delighted to be approached by Paisley Community Trust to review their plans for the newly proposed Cinema and Theatre for the town. What can we say, we were blown away with what we saw! The designs look amazing. Having been a massive supporter of the town and with close relationships to the communities, we have a fairly good idea of what people are looking for and what the town needs. The Trust’s plans are exactly what the town needs. It will put Paisley back on the cultural map, not just locally but nationally. It will attract people and communities back into use the town.

You’ll be able to take part in a variety of classes or to catch a movie or a show. There is no doubt this will provide the transformation the town needs. Community groups, Council and Paisley Buddies need to get behind the Trust’s vision. We’re in!”

Brian McGuire, Founder,

“ is without doubt one of the key websites for Paisley. They work closely with the town, businesses and community.

They have their finger on the pulse when it comes to what the town needs. We were nervous in showing them because we really respect their knowledge, however we shouldn’t have been. The response was overwhelmingly positive. Their backing and support confirms the need in the town for what we are planning. We’ve agreed that will be one of our key partners in engaging and discussing with the town’s communities. We’re delighted to share a teaser image for to exclusively publish with more news to come!”

Have you ever wondered what a credit union is? My Credit Union Renfrewshire will answer all your questions.



We are delighted to announce the launch of a new website, outdoor advertising and radio campaign that will raise awareness of credit unions in Renfrewshire and answer the common question ‘What is a credit union’. To celebrate the launch, we are extending an invitation to the public and press to an event that will take place on Thursday 20th October (International Credit Union day) in the Piazza centre Paisley at 11am.

screen-shot-2016-10-06-at-10-54-46 has been designed to promote the benefits of Credit Unions to the people of Renfrewshire. The fresh, easy-to-use website signposts people to credit unions throughout Renfrewshire, lists all their services and highlights the many benefits of saving and borrowing affordably. A key aim is to raise public awareness of credit unions generally and to help people enjoy the benefits of sound money management.

The website is funded by Renfrewshire Council who have committed up to £500,000 of funding to support credit union development in Renfrewshire as a key strand of their Tackling Poverty strategy. This substantial investment has been used in a variety of initiatives to tackle the rise in high cost lending and to provide access to a wider range of ethical and affordable financial products for the Renfrewshire community.

Gleniffer Credit Union, Johnstone Credit Union, Renfrewshire-Wide Credit Union, Scotwest Credit Union and White Cart Credit Union have collaborated on the development of the website to ensure that the Renfrewshire community can make an informed choice on the best credit union for their needs. Paula Ferrier, the Marketing Officer overseeing the website development said, “This is a fantastic opportunity for credit unions in Renfrewshire, to have a campaign that promotes good value financial products and services and the many free benefits that are available. Credit unions are not for profit, member-owned financial cooperatives, so they can’t always compete with the massive marketing budgets that banks and high-cost lenders can deploy. In some ways, credit unions are a well-kept secret! However, more and more people are discovering how much better off they are by joining a credit union, and with over a million members across the UK, mycreditunionrenfrewshire will help open credit union doors to even more people in Renfrewshire.”

To mark the launch of this vibrant new website and to celebrate International Credit Union Day, representatives from all five credit unions will be in the Piazza Centre, Paisley on Thursday 20th October from 11am to 1pm to chat and answer any questions about joining a credit union. Additionally, Councillor Mike Holmesdeputy leader of Renfrewshire Council, and several third sector agencies will be present to help raise awareness of credit unions and help mark the occasion.

There will be lots of credit union freebies being handed out – so call into the Piazza Centre and let Renfrewshire credit unions help you to make the most out of life and your money!


Breaking the school resistance of unjustified students requires commitment and responsiveness. Through a learning that is perceived as “real”, the teacher can build up the lost sense of meaningfulness and contribute to the student’s inner motivation.

One of the fundamental problems in today’s school is that too many students experience the meeting with the school as meaningless. These students’ inner motivation for school work decreases the more they are in a school where they do not feel involved or do not feel that the content is real. The fact that it is possible to succeed in making the school meaningful and motivating when there is no motivation shows among other things.

The teachers’ main ability to create inner motivation among the students is about having a sense of and being able to interpret what students feel about different situations in school. Motivation is a complex and multifaceted concept that involves different things for different people and in different situations. There are a number of different definitions of motivation in different types of research that are influenced by different paradigms. For example, a simple and clear definition of motivation can be: “what makes man do something”. Targeted to the school then becomes the question: What is it that causes students in the school to do something?

The answer is that what causes students to do something could be different motivational factors and these are very different for different individuals. It is common for motivational factors to be roughly divided into the two categories of internal and external motivation. Internal motivation is, for example, people’s own interests, experiences of meaningfulness, being able to choose for themselves, the feeling of having control of tasks and challenges themselves. External motivation is more about rewards, stimuli and response, coercion, punishment and control from outside.

In the school, some examples of external motivation are homework, tests and grades – which are also strong motivational factors for large student groups. I, myself, prefer to the best essay writing services uk as by working online, I am not limited by a set of conventional rules. The grades, homework and tests are not motivational factors for students who have built up a school resistance or for students who think that “the school is not a place where I can learn meaningful things”. For those students, grades, homework and tests instead become an obstacle to learning, thus something that reduces students’ internal motivation for school work.

Pupils who have built up a strong school resistance often have poor self-confidence in the school context because of previous negative experiences of school failures. Another group is those who have study conditions but who do not identify themselves as individuals who study, which is often linked to social group or low level of education in the home. The completely different activities are required in the school if the students are to receive an internal motivation for school work.

Formative assessment and the relation pupil – teacher are two of the highest ranked factors. The common interpretation is that what the teacher does together with students in a close relationship is most crucial for what students actually learn, which is because these learning situations increase students’ internal motivation for school work.

If a teacher meets a student group that already has great internal motivation generally for school work, then focus can be placed on being as good a didactic as possible regarding the content that the teacher, hopefully together with the students, has planned as important to learn. When a teacher meets students who perhaps have built up a large school resistance for a long time, then the focus must first of all be on activities and learning situations that are aimed at breaking the school resistance.

Gavin Newlands MP



Gavin Newlands, SNP MP for Paisley and Renfrewshire North, joined calls from MPs of all major parties for a fair and democratic process to bring an end to the Catalan crisis.

Gavin Newlands MP

This follows the start of the trial of many pro-independence Catalan politicians and activists, some of whom have been remanded in prison for over a year on trumped up charges of rebellion and sedition. The 12 defendants include the President of the Catalan Parliament (equivalent to the House of Commons’ Speaker), and two civil society leaders.

Newlands has established himself as a strong supporter of the Catalan right to determine their own future and has spoken out against state repression of democracy across the world. Newlands has also drawn the public eye towards the links between Paisley and Renfrewshire North and Catalonia, including the connections to the small village of Borgonya where the local team plays in St Mirren style stripes due to their common history with the Coats group.

Speaking up for the 12 accused, Newlands said:

“I am proud to join MPs from across parties to stand in solidarity with the Catalan political prisoners who this week begun their trial on medieval charges of rebellion and sedition.

“Catalan pro-independence parties went into an election with a promise that they would hold a referendum on their independence, this gave them an undeniable mandate. The Spanish Government cannot continue to ignore these democratic calls forever.

“Regardless of your opinion on Catalan Independence, one thing is certain, namely that as enshrined in article 1 of the UN Charter, the right of Self-Determination must be protected all over the world. It is an international norm that must be respected and championed by everyone who claims to believe in democracy.

“The Spanish Government must agree to a fair and robust democratic process to bring this crisis to an end.”

Due to the hard work of the Change Lochwinnoch Campaign and St. Vincent’s Hospice Volunteers, the charity shop in the heart of the village will begin its major refurbishment on Friday 1st March 2019.

Having hit their ambitious target, the shop is now set for a complete refurbishment, creating a modern, warm and welcoming space for the community to enjoy while continuing to raise vital funds for the charity.

The Change Lochwinnoch project was launched by a group of volunteers in the local community who have close ties to the life changing work of St. Vincent’s Hospice and the importance that donations to their charity shop make to their services.

Commenting on the work, Trading Support Manager for St. Vincent’s Hospice, Fiona Campbell, said: “The level of support our Hospice receives from the community in Lochwinnoch really is second to none, and we have been blown away by the work and dedication they have put in to make this refurbishment a reality!

“Each year our shops generate more than £400,000 which goes directly towards supporting the work of our Hospice. Not only will these changes to the shop help patients and families all throughout Renfrewshire, but it will also be a hub for the community, a place for people to meet, chat, make new friends and bring people together.”

St. Vincent’s Hospice is a specialist provider of palliative and Hospice care for individuals and families affected by life-limiting conditions from across Renfrewshire.

In the last year alone, the Hospice offered care for hundreds of families across Renfrewshire through their eight bed In-patient Unit, Day Hospice Service and in the comfort of people’s own homes with their Community Nurse Specialists team.

Fiona added: “Work will be ongoing in the shop throughout the month of March, and we owe a massive debt of thanks to every single person who has helped make this possible. Thank you!”

Gavin Newlands, SNP MP for Paisley and Renfrewshire North, met with Claire Perry, UK Government Minister for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy, to discuss the ongoing Green Deal scandal which has left thousands out of pocket due to the dishonest sales practices undertaken by the disgraced company HELMS. Newlands’ constituency of Paisley and Renfrewshire North has more households affected than any other constituency in the UK.

gavin newlands mp

HELMS actions were enabled by the UK Government, who have been accused of ‘trying to look Green’ rather than implementing effective energy-saving policies with adequate consumer protections. Many have been disappointed by the Green Deal – which looked good on paper as it promised to provide more energy efficient homes resulting in cheaper bills and lower carbon footprints. However, in reality it has driven many into dire financial straits due to skyrocketing energy bills and debt tied to the property rather than the individual.

Newlands has raised this issue with the UK Government on many occasions, including with the Prime Minister.

Newlands met with the Minister of State Claire Perry MP, alongside George Arbuckle from Trading Standards Scotland, Marcus Wilson from Citizens Advice Scotland, and Victoria Wilson and David Rendell from the Green Deal Finance Company. The meeting was secured by the Renfrewshire MP to facilitate a discussion with all parties involved in dealing with the aftermath of the HELMS Scandal in order to explain the complexities involved to the Government. This included raising the issues that many of his constituents have had with the complaints process, whilst raising the various inadequacies and loopholes within the scheme that allowed disgraced former Managing Director of HELMS, Robert Skillen to abuse the system.

The Minister has committed to look at the provision of support for those going through the complaints handling process and has also committed to liaising with the Green Deal Finance Company to speed up the resolution of cases.

“Hundreds  of my constituents have been left out of pocket thanks to this poorly designed and woefully implemented policy, so it is encouraging that the Minister finally met with me after raising this issue for quite some time.

“Be in no doubt that HELMS are responsible for this situation but no one expects to be scammed when they sign paperwork with a UK Government symbol, this is why Claire Perry and the Tory Government have a duty to resolve this scandal.

“I hope that this meeting allowed all parties involved to gain a better understanding of what many of my constituents in Paisley and Renfrewshire North have been going through, and I hope that the Minister will now act accordingly to finally bring cases to a satisfactory conclusion by ensuring that they are appropriately compensated.

Not to mention the support provided not only to the patients but their families and loved ones. B + W are proud to sponsor St. Vincent’s Hospice and give a little towards helping such a worthy charity.”

Senior Fundraiser for St. Vincent’s Hospice, Louise Strachan, said: “On behalf of everyone at St Vincent’s Hospice, I want to say a heartfelt thank you to Barr & Wray for their continued support.

At St Vincent’s Hospice, we offer specialist palliative and Hospice care for people and families all across Renfrewshire and beyond who are impacted by life-limiting conditions.  Every year we have to raise more than £1.1 million to offer the level of support that we do for the community, making sure we are offering the right care, in the right way, for anyone who needs it.

This simply wouldn’t be possible without the wonderful support of the community, and we truly cannot thank Barr & Wray enough.  Their generosity and continued support will make such a huge difference to patients and families all around the community, at a time when they need it most.”

Pirates travelled north to the Lynx Arena and recorded a notable win as they put the home side to the sword, securing an excellent victory in front of a capacity crowd.


The visitors were obliged to play off early penalties but in fact it was during one of those periods of play, with Thorp sitting out a Holding call, that they broke with Abercrombie assisting Walker to score the opening goal while they were at a numerical disadvantage. While that goal proved to be the only one of the period, Pirates did in fact keep Lynx netminder Chalmers busy throughout the session, while Russell in the visiting net had little to do by comparison, and thus the visitors headed to the changing rooms holding a narrow 1-0 advantage at the break.

Aberdeen were penalised within a minute of the restart and found themselves two behind as Pirates made full use of the powerplay to double their lead, Walker netting his second of the game. The hosts saw a little more of the puck than they had done in the first session and pulled a goal back in the 29th minute through Durkacz, but Walker restored his side’s two goal lead with 5 minutes of the session remaining with an unassisted goal, making it a straight hat trick for the Pirates’ player/coach. With no further scoring, the buzzer sounded for the end of the session with the visitors holding a handy 3-1 advantage.

Pirates continued to have the bulk of play in the final session but they were shocked when Lynx reduced the deficit to one through Thomson in the 46th minute. The home side’s joy was short lived, however, as within two minutes they were penalised and Pirates scored immediately through Henderson to lead 4-2. Any remaining doubts about the destiny of the two league points were doused in the final five minutes, with the visitors on the powerplay again, as Walker netted his own fourth, and his team’s fifth, to silence the home fans and send the visiting supporters homeward with smiles on their faces.

Pirates Player/Coach, Adam Walker, commented after the game, “I thought we played a really solid road game last night. It’s always difficult to get the two points in Aberdeen but to heavily outshoot them and keep them to the outside for most of the game is a credit to our team. Everyone played their part and kept disciplined and that made. the difference.”

Pirates return to home ice this Saturday after a 3 week absence to face Solway Stingrays (face off 6.30pm)




Paisley Pirates are back in action at Braehead Arena this Saturday as they welcome the Solway Stingrays to the venue for what will be their first home fixture in the Scottish National League for a few weeks. The club has recorded two excellent wins on the road over the last fortnight and will be looking to keep that good form going on home ice, particularly after beating Aberdeen 5-2 at a venue which has been somewhat problematic in recent years.

Head Coach Ian Turley commented, “It was very good collective performance from everyone. The team’s attitude and approach to the game was excellent and all the boys contributed to the win whether they played a lot of minutes or not.”

Pirates hope to continue their run in front of a big crowd on Saturday, as they look to cement a place in the top four ahead of playoff season, which commences in a few weeks’ time, and which would see them gain one of the seeded places, while looking to see the return of a few players who have been missing for various reasons in recent weeks as they head into the latter stages of the season.

Face off against the Stingrays is at 6.30pm.

A new chapter in the story of Paisley’s library services has begun.

The temporary home for Paisley Central Library opened this week in a new building next to The Lagoon Leisure Centre.


The move has been made to allow the refurbishment and creation of a learning and cultural hub at Central Library, on Paisley’s High Street, when it re-opens in 2021.


The work is part of an investment in Paisley town centre venues by Renfrewshire Council to support a wider push to use the town’s unique cultural and heritage assets to transform the area’s future and bring new footfall to the town centre.

In the meantime, the usual services of book lending, free computer and internet access, Bookbug sessions and children’s activities are available at the library facility at The Lagoon.

Opening hours are 9am to 5pm on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday and 9am to 8pm on Tuesday and Thursday.

Councillor Lisa Marie Hughes said: “There are exciting times ahead for Renfrewshire cultural scene in general and Paisley library service in particular.

“Once work has been completed at Central Library, the people of Renfrewshire will have a fantastic literary, cultural and social facility we can be proud of.

“And while that work is on-going we’ll have the same library services available at the Central Library’s temporary home, so no one misses out.”


When you are a student, you always have a whole bunch of things to do. Even when you barely sleep and constantly do something, even when you seem to know what is urgent and what is not. When did the moment come when you started losing time and failed to cope with everything? How to be a student who is not looking for time to sleep and rest? In this article, we will try to figure out how to manage your time correctly by giving you some time management tips so that life does not seem so tense anymore.


Write down all your plans


You can’t remember everything. Perhaps at the very beginning of your student life, it seems to you that each detail of your schedule is not crucial and you can recollect the necessary info easily. But this is only at the very beginning, beyond all affairs there will be only more and more, and we should be ready for this. Therefore, make a habit of writing down every detail that requires your attention in your planner, notebook, smartphone, or laptop. The sooner you start doing this; the less is the chance that you will miss an important event or the moment when things really get terrible. Keeping everything under control and understanding what is time management is a very important skill. After all, if you cannot control such an important aspect of your life like time, how are you going to work effectively in the future?



You don’t have to do everything at once. This is the main problem of people who want to be effective but do not understand what is going wrong. After all, they are so diligently working on all the tasks they have, they have everything written down and right in front of them lies a to-do list for today. The problem is that everything needs to be approached step by step, so do not even try to do everything in one day. You must be able to correctly calculate your effectiveness depends on many factors. Not only how long will this or that task take, but also your level of fatigue, motivation, urgency, volume, and your ability to do any other task after that. Evaluate not only the complexity of the task, but also your own effectiveness based on your fatigue, mood, and motivation. Indicate cases by level of importance and at the very beginning of the day when you still have the strength to make the most urgent and most difficult of them. This will help you save energy for other smaller tasks and save you from burning deadlines that literally follow every student almost all student life. Also, if you want to save your energy google «write my essay» or click the link and give it a chance.

Plan your rest


Yes, we live in such a time when because of all our affairs, we not only do not have time to rest but do not even have time to plan our rest. How exactly do you want to recuperate? Maybe near the pool? Take a nap on the couch or read a book? Or maybe you want a full eight-hour sleep that will bring you back to life after a hard week? Do not think that you will rest as soon as you finish. Plan it and act on your plan. Many people do not understand this, and therefore they cannot answer the question when they last normally rested. A good rest is the same important part of life as everything else, so it needs to be planned like all other things. In addition, it greatly affects your health and your level of efficiency. So, it directly affects your success in college or at work. Since you cannot always ask someone to “write for me” your tests, essays, exams, you should only rely on yourself.

By following these simple rules, you can increase your activity and keep up with more. You will not miss anything important, and you will not wake up from nightmares about missed deadlines and failed exams. Focus on planning, and you will not need to focus on memorizing a whole list of various trivia from homework to shopping in the store. After all, planning can be used not only in school but also in any other aspect of your life. Free time, plan things, load yourself to the maximum and be an effective manager for yourself.
