Ruth Lorenzo and Lemar were special guests today at the annual Christmas Lights switch on, Clyde 1 kept us entertained also with the big finale of Fireworks and the Christmas lights being switched on it was watched by what I would estimate to be around 20,000 to 30,000 people and even the weather “cold though” was very kind to us.

The event was very well organised and extra barriers and the placement of the stage made for easier movement within the crowd… So why not get down and see all the lights in action, they get better each year..

From everyone here at well done to the organisers once again.. Job done..

Look in the gallery and the flickr group for pictures of the event itself..

Also HistoricalPaisley has a great set of pictures online too.

Also if you would like to discuss the event in the message board, sign up and let us know your opinion.


I have a new competition for the Paisley website, You can win yourself a free Portrait sitting, by simply selecting the top ten images of Paisley from our Gallery.

The images have to be taken by Brian McGuire and show Paisley, all entries will be picked at random and you will then be contacted by myself to arrange a free portrait sitting “it could be family, or a single portrait” done by Paisley Photography.

Simply tell us the set the picture is in and what the image is about. send them into the website using the contact page.
