Special report on Lilias Day 2019 – now on Mixcloud

There was a special programme on Lilias Day 2019 broadcast on Paisley FM 107.5 on Monday evening, 3 June.  The programme featured interviews in Kilbarchan produced and presented by Ron Seeth and you listen to it here at Mixcloud.

Ron also spoke to Lilias Day organising committee member Graham Stockton; with ‘Habbie Simpson’ and the Kilbarchan Crier.

Programme presenter Ron Seeth, who lives in Kilbarchan, talked to Miss Lilias 2019, Mabel Wylie who was chosen based on her contribution to the community or good causes.
