On the 11 September I have agreed to give up my spare time and trek across the Himalayas in India. This is to help raise awareness and funds for Maggie’s cancer centres.  The Maggie’s centres provide a comprehensive cancer support programme for people and their families affected by cancer across Glasgow and surrounding areas.  By the 23rd June 2008 I have to raise a minimum of £3,000 in sponsorship money. I have several events organised to help reach this goal including a Charity Race Night, street collecting and bag packing.

As this is a massive task to  take on not only for the amount of money to raise but also for the physical challenge I would be very grateful if you would consider sponsoring me on this life challenging event. By agreeing to this you will be involved in contributing to such a worth while charity.

To kindly donate please go to this website

If you require any further information I can be contacted by email on

At last those in charge have now seen sense and Glasgow Airport is to be renamed Paisley International Airport as from next month, the move has been welcomed by Paisley Buddies worldwide and will be a unique way of putting Paisley, Scotland on the international arena for the first time ever.

Dr Joe King of Glasgow Airport said “Paisley deserves this more than Glasgow since Paisley’s brilliant and Glasgow is ……not as good as Paisley”

We spoke to a representative of Renfrewshire Council and Cllr I P Freely said “the town was awash with rumours about a possible take over of Glasgow Airport, but I can neither say these rumours are true nor are they false but the price of cheese sure is high these days”.

What do you think of the new name change?? please post your comments below and let me know if you think this will benefit the town.


We are nearly finished our Paisley and Renfrewshire events section and it will contain updated events on a regular basis hopefully for months in advance, but we need something from you.

We need you to tell us about your event or activity be it the annual dance to the weekly activities such as the local community hall bingo, the Boys Brigade, the Local Scout group, special events such as the Paisley Beer festival or Accord day and even tell us if you hear about an event that’s happening.

We will display your event or activity weekly or monthly depending on when it takes place this is a free way to publicise your event to thousands of people and boost your numbers, we can even display your event on our frontpage for a short time to highlight your event in the Paisley or Renfrewshire area and beyond.

All we need is some basic details.

  • The Name of the event
  • Where is it taking place, i.e Paisley, Johnstone, Linwood, Barrhead, Renfrew, Houston etc etc
  • The location of the event i.e Paisley Town Hall, Foxbar Community Centre etc
  • The time and date of the event and when it finishes
  • The description of the event and if there is a price or booking number
  • And also any special information that is attached to the event.

Remember it is free, send your event in by using the contact page on the paisley website

I have been asked a few times ‘what is a blog?’ and what is its use in the Paisley website?

Well I will try and explain in layman’s terms, this blog is basically an online journal of an individual or individuals thoughts and wittering. I am trying to put things that cant be put into a section on a website into this blog, like the Chinese numbers, taxi numbers etc.

Also the blog can be written from anywhere and is archived in a chronological order from new listings at the top to oldest at the bottom.

Also I want people to comment or even write their own journals on here this way people who are visiting this website don’t get the view of one individual.

So how do you comment? well from the main paisley home page click on the header of the blog that is being listed and it will take you through to the new or blog page, at the bottom you will see your name, email and comment box so that you can write what you need to write “keep it clean” but please feel free.
