Wingwalk DSC_7180 (600x399)

Renfrewshire’s Provost Anne Hall and seventeen big-hearted locals have been flying high in a special charity event.

The wing-walk, which is raising awareness of armed forces charity Help for Heroes, took place on Strathaven Airfield on Wednesday 20 and Thursday 21 August. Provost Hall, who took part in the wing-walk on the second day, started the campaign in March to show support for Help for Heroes, who help wounded service men and women and their families.

WWII Spitfire

A World War II Spitfire visited Glasgow Airport today as part of the 75th anniversary celebrations of the engines being made by Rolls Royce. The Spitfire was originally scheduled to do a fly-pass of the Rolls Royce buildings in Inchinnan and East Kilbride last year but it had to be cancelled due to technical difficulties with the aircraft. It was well worth the wait though as the plane went through its paces on a circular route around the Inchinnan plant. Click here for more photos.

HISTORY

IMG_3998w1

Paisley is the largest town in Scotland. The town  has a rich history; from it’s 12th century Cluniac Abbey, it’s world famous Paisley Pattern Shawls, and its position at the forefront of the Thread Industry all of which brought great wealth and prosperity to the Town, enabling it to build it’s inspiring Town Hall, Museum and Art Gallery, Observatory, Schools and numerous fine Churches.

Paisley is surrounded by many historical towns and villages and is also ideally situated as a gateway to the Highlands and Islands, with Loch Lomond only 20 minutes away and Edinburgh a mere 45 minutes, and with the airport within 2 miles of the centre of Paisley, it really is the ideal base for visitors from near and far.
