Renfrewshire Council are recruiting for a number of nursery jobs across the area.

Laura Sheridan, who changed her career to work in early years says it means she is making a big difference to children’s lives. 

Ferguslie ELCC Crafts 2Y9A9588

She said: “I started working in early years as a supply worker, but it wasn’t long before I gained a permanent post as an Early Learning and Childcare Officer (ELCO) at Glendee ELCC.

“Every day is different in a nursery and each child is an individual with their own ways of doing things. That’s why we provide them with a range of experiences and options at Glendee. We have a free-flow environment, which means the children can take part in the same experiences outdoors as they do indoors. They can choose where they want to go and what they want to do.

“Our centre has strong links with the local care home and groups of children visit the residents each week as part of their intergenerational learning. We also have a forest kindergarten that we visit to explore and learn about the natural world. These trips help children to develop team building and understand the risks in their environment.

“I’m also responsible for a group of children within the centre and I track their developmental milestones. If a child needs additional support, we will work with parents and outside agencies to make sure we have the right support in place for them.

“I’ve been working in early years for more than six years now and I love it. Making a difference in children’s lives is very important to me and I am so glad I changed my career to do it. I used to work in the travel industry, but I’ve always wanted to work with children. So, after my son was born, I decided to head off to college and get my HNC in Childhood Practice.

“You get paid well, have flexibility on when you can take your holidays and have a rewarding job. I’d recommend it to anyone who has a passion for children and their learning and development.”

paisley pirates

Paisley Pirates supporters have been given an early season bonus, following the news that supporters and sponsors have the chance to secure a game worn jersey featuring the latest design just as the new term gets underway.

paisley pirates

Off Ice Operations Manager Jackie Turley broke the news just as the club finalised preparations for their opening fixtures in the new campaign. “We usually give supporters the chance to buy the jerseys anyway, but not until much later in the season,” she explained. “This year, we’re introducing a new feature in that any supporters/sponsors purchasing the top will have their name stitched into it, done professionally by one of our sponsors, Custom Sport Stitch, thus ensuring that everywhere we play their support will be recognised.”

“They will, of course, receive their jersey at the end of the season at a special club presentation, but it means that that this recognition is therefore for all to see for the duration of the season-the quicker they take up their option to buy, and pay their £60 to do so, the quicker their name will be shown on ice rinks all over Scotland. It seems a good deal to us, and, judging by the huge number of requests we’re getting already, the fans and businesses think so too!”

“Of course, in addition to letting everyone know they’re helping the club in a very direct way, clubs/sponsors are also getting the chance of buying a piece of club history. How so? Well, fans who bought jerseys last year now have in their possession a jersey which was worn when  the club became playoff champions for the first time ever. We think that’s something that’s priceless to a Paisley Pirates fan so, the message is, if you want a chance of buying history, and you’ll pardon the pun, get your skates on and contact the club at without delay!”

Long gone are the days where you have to send money long distance waiting for it to get to your recipient’s address, yet some people still don’t take advantage of today’s methods of sending money online. Sometimes it’s because they’re just used to sending money the old fashioned way, or they’re uncertain about the safety of online transfers. But those who like to send money online will tell you it’s great convenience for them for the following seven reasons.

They Don’t Have To Wait In Line At The Store Or Post Office

Sending money through the mail as a check or money order requires you to go to the post office to get postage, and sometimes it can take a little while to wait in line for it. Even some electronic transfers initiated in stores may mean a wait in line and filling out paper forms at your local convenience store. Sending money online can be done pretty much anywhere and any time, and it doesn’t require you to wait in line or only send money during business hours.

The Money Always Arrives Sooner Than In The Mail

Wouldn’t it be nice to know that the person you sent money to got their money almost right away? With some online transfer services, this is actually possible depending on how money is sent and received. No matter where in the world you send money to, sending it online nearly always ensures it’s delivered sooner than in the mail.

They Can Pay Using The Payment Method Of Their Choice

Sometimes there’s a limit on how you can pay for money orders or electronic transfers in stores. But with sending money online, you can usually pay with a bank transfer, debit card, and even a credit card though it may be charged as a cash advance. If you want to send cash online, some transfer services will initiate the transaction online but still require to finish it at a local agent location.

They Can See Exchange Rates Listed Online

When you’re sending money to another country, it’s good to know immediately just how much it will be in that country’s local currency. Many transfer services have foreign exchange rates listed both on their website page or app service, and you can see the total exchange amount during the send money process. If there are any exchange fees for your transfer, you’ll see those as well.

If There’s An Error, They Can Edit Or Cancel The Transaction Immediately

Have you ever had that annoying experience where you accidentally misspelled a name or address wrong while sending mail and ended up having it returned to you? When you send money online, you can track your transaction and if you discover an error in the recipient information you typed, you can correct it. If for any reason you do need to cancel your transfer, you can do that if you do it before your recipient claims their money.

Sending Money Online Is Actually Safer Than Most People Think

Sometimes people fear sending money online or through an app because they don’t think it’s safe enough. If you follow instructions carefully and only use legitimate websites and apps to send money, then it actually is quite safe. You should always make sure you only send money when you’re on a secure network, and for extra protection you may want to use a VPN. But most online transfer services use strong security measures for their websites, and they take measures to make sure your financial data is protected.

Above All, It’s Simple

Even if you’re not a very savvy tech expert, you really don’t need to be to use online money sending services. Most transfer services have easy steps that are just a matter of entering in information and just making sure your transaction was approved. If you do want a little extra security from using a VPN, all you usually need to do there is just download an app or software and hit the connect button.

With all these benefits of sending money online, there really is very little reason not to do so. How much you can send depends on which country you’re sending to and any limits that the transfer service has. But you can always visit around different services to check the rates and fees.

period poverty

Free sanitary products are now available in the toilets at Renfrewshire Leisure run Town Halls and libraries, and in the bathrooms and accessible toilets at its sports and leisure centres.
Nearly one in five women in Scotland have experienced period poverty, with 12% of girls saying they have resorted to using rags and socks during their time of the month.

period poverty
Funding for the free sanitary products has been provided by the Scottish Government as part of its efforts to tackle period poverty in Scotland.

Councillor Michelle Campbell, Renfrewshire Council’s Young Persons Champion, said: “Period poverty affects people across Renfrewshire, with some having to choose between feeding themselves and their families, and buying sanitary products.

“We believe everyone has the right to a dignified life and we want to do everything we can to help anyone who finds themselves facing period poverty.

“The sanitary products we are putting into our community venues are free and available to anyone who needs them. Take whatever you need, whenever you need it.”

The council started offering free sanitary products in schools last year and supplies are also available in community groups, including STAR Project, Active Communities, Home-Start Renfrewshire, Renfrewshire Citizens Advice Bureau and Engage Renfrewshire, who can give to anyone who needs them.

period poverty
The distribution of products to community groups is carried out by FareShare.

Heather Kay, project coordinator at STAR Project, said: “We firmly believe no person should have to experience period poverty and therefore make sanitary products readily available in our toilets. We also give people the opportunity to take boxes of sanitary products from our Community Pantry.

“Being able to receive free sanitary products through the Fareshare scheme is fantastic. Our members have benefited from it, with one person recently commenting she ‘no longer dreads that time of the month where I need to decide between food or pads’.”
The launch of the products in Renfrewshire community facilities coincides with Challenge Poverty Week, which runs until Sunday 13 October.

The week aims to highlight the reality of poverty in Scotland and the work being done to tackle it, showcase the solutions to poverty and increase public support for action to solve it.
Chairperson of Renfrewshire Leisure, Councillor Lisa-Marie Hughes said: “There is an increasing awareness of the impact period poverty has on the lives of many people in society.

“We share a responsibility to ensure everyone has a decent standard of living and at Renfrewshire Leisure we feel it’s important that free sanitary products are easily available to those who need them.
“Our sports and leisure facilities are popular places where many people go and we hope there will be a good uptake of the free products being made available.”

Other activities which have taken place in Renfrewshire during Challenge Poverty Week include the launch of STAR Project’s Community Fridge Recipe Book and a collection of toiletry products by Active Communities to highlight and tackle hygiene poverty.

1Thousands of people had bought tickets by the Moon City Council, which at the last minute refused to issue a business permit. Under pressure, the city issued a temporary permit permitting Paisley Park to be open to the public for just three days on October 6, 8 and 14. Not only did I have the privilege of seeing the place where Prince expressed his creativity for three decades, but I feel fortunate to experience it when future projects unfold.

Main Hall

The Sovereign imagined enabling people in general to visit the office. With the union of Elvis Presley’s Graceland firm, the family has made a fine showing, instead of satisfying their goals. Meeting El Rooker, Ruler’s sister, Tyka Nelson, affirmed that Sovereign had more intends to resemble a historical center. The focal corridor is a two-story open space with four pyramid bay windows. The marble floor is enriched with the image of an extraordinary Ruler.

Two white birds in the confines are obvious in the lobby. A scale model of the Paisley Park and the Ruler’s cinders are perched on a platform in the corridor. The declaration was a stun to us all that we could scarcely make a move on that reality. I particularly had blended sentiments about the lighting show in this setting, yet this pyramid was under the bay windows so perhaps this is a decent spot. Guests of things to come are readied.

Studios A and B

The VIP Tour gave access to a video altering suite and two chronicle studios. Studio A comprises of a huge, delightfully made space that incorporates cutting edge blending supports, slender wooden boards, and individual chronicle stalls. Numerous specialists have recorded music here. The more youthful of these two, in Studio B, Ruler recorded the vast majority of his work, beginning with “The Song of Dorothy Parker.” His purple piano and blue guitar sit in a corner, where we took photographs. The staff urged individuals to play ping pong, as the Ruler likes to do. On the off chance that you were slanted towards this, you could utilize a purple ball.

Purple Downpour, Different Motion pictures, and Sound Stage

These excursions were committed to the purple light, to the room and to the “purple downpour.” Purple suits are in plain view alongside the film’s bike and Ringling suit. The following room is separated between the specialty of “Under the Cherry Moon” and the exemplary highly contrasting shading symbolism of the brilliant “Spray painting Scaffold”.

At last, we went through the meeting room with a cutting edge piano that entered the phase of Sovereign Sound. The show film was played on a big screen and the five tours highlighted instrumentation from various touring periods: Third Eye Young lady, Salvation, The Gold Experience, Insurgency, and the piano and a mic. His new purple and gold guitar is in plain view also.
