Ice work by Pais­ley First

Paisley Daily Express - - Pink Panties Flasher Hit With Home Curfew -

Busi­ness re­gen­er­a­tion group Pais­ley First is hop­ing to bring some­thing n-ice to Pais­ley for the fes­tive sea­son.

It has been around a decade since Pais­ley had a per­ma­nent ice rink – and the good news is that the skat­ing could be com­ing back for Christ­mas.

Pais­ley First is hop­ing to cre­ate a win­ter won­der­land ex­pe­ri­ence in the town cen­tre, com­plete with a rink.

For four weeks, you will be able to take to the ice and also en­joy a panoramic Star Flyer ride, browse a con­ti­nen­tal-style mar­ket and wan­der round a free fes­tive Nutcracker Trail, with 10 nutcracker kings spread through­out the town, from Sat­ur­day, De­cem­ber 2 un­til Sat­ur­day, De­cem­ber 16.

Pais­ley First has teamed up with M&D Events for the fes­tive ex­trav­a­ganza, with the aim of giv­ing Bud­dies a great ex­pe­ri­ence right on their doorstep and at­tract­ing new visi­tors to town.

A plan­ning ap­pli­ca­tion is cur­rently be­ing lodged with Ren­frew­shire Coun­cil.

If Santa comes early and the am­bi­tious project gets ap­proval, the Won­derFest will take place in the town cen­tre from Novem­ber 24 un­til Christ­mas Eve.

Pais­ley First chair­man Ian Hen­der­son said:“This will be a great event to show­case ev­ery­thing that Pais­ley has to of­fer dur­ing the fes­tive sea­son. There is so much to see and do in the town al­ready and this will help ce­ment the town’s rep­u­ta­tion as a vis­i­tor des­ti­na­tion.

“We will also be run­ning a Christ­mas re­tail cam­paign.

“We be­lieve the con­ti­nen­tal style mar­ket will really com­ple­ment the ex­ist­ing Christ­mas shop­ping avail­able in the town and we are also hop­ing some of the lo­cal traders will get in­volved too.”

The Nutcracker Trail will see visi­tors col­lect spe­cial book­lets and com­plete the trail for a chance to win a spe­cial prize.

To mark the end of the Nutcracker Trail, there will also be a chil­dren’s carol con­cert in the town cen­tre on Sat­ur­day, De­cem­ber 16.

Ad­vance book­ing for Win­terFest can be made at­sev­ents.
