Extinction Rebellion is coming to Renfrewshire

Exciting news – Extinction Rebellion is coming to Renfrewshire! There is already an incredibly committed and dedicated environmental community living across Renfrewshire. With so many people to engage with we are really excited to spread our roots further across Scotland and make XR more accessible for those living outside Glasgow, and support and encourage local activists to organise.

To get the word out across Renfrewshire, we will be holding eight public talks on the climate crisis, where we will sum up the latest climate science, talk about the potential future of our planet if immediate action is not taken, discuss the current psychology around climate change and most importantly offer solutions through the study of social movements.

The first talk will be held in Johnstone Parish church on Monday 27th May at 7.00pm. For contact information, visit the ‘Extinction Rebellion Renfrewshire’ Facebook page. See full event list. All talks are free.

 

 

Paisley and Renfrewshire looks ahead to a summer of great events to enjoy

Paisley’s annual Sma’ Shot Day celebration, which is one of the world’s oldest workers’ festivals, will take place on Saturday 6 July.

The holiday takes its name from a famous dispute between the local shawl weavers and manufacturers in the 19th century and is held on the first Saturday in July to mark the time of year when the weavers and their families would traditionally take their holidays.

The traditional Sma’ Shot parade will make its way from Brodie Park to Paisley town centre, with this year’s activities taking place around Paisley Arts Centre, Witherspoon Street and Shuttle Street – where the town’s historic Sma’ Shot Cottages can be found.

The annual Renfrew and Barshaw Gala Days will also take place on Sunday 2 and Saturday 22 June.

Renfrewshire’s major events generated almost £5m for the local economy in 2018 and saw total attendance figures of over 160,000.

Renfrewshire Council Leader Iain Nicolson said: “Renfrewshire has firmly established itself as a key destination on Scotland’s events map over the past few years, which is testament to the high quality and wide appeal of the area’s annual events programme.

“The major events calendar will continue to go from strength to strength with a host of must-see events in 2019 – from a food and drink extravaganza and one of the world’s biggest piping events to free family fun in our communities.

“Renfrewshire’s events programme is a key part of a wider plan to attract visitors and drive footfall to our town centres and villages – and we hope that 2019 will be our best year yet.”
