Blind date suc­cess

Paisley Daily Express - - Front Page -

Ro­mance is on the cards for one Ren­frew­shire woman who agreed to a date with a dif­fer­ence at a shop­ping cen­tre.

Brave Re­becca Pi­etryga, from Lochwin­noch, was one half of the lucky cou­ple set up on a blind date by intu Brae­head.

Per­sua­sion from a friend was what pushed the 27-yearold sin­gle­ton to ap­ply for the unique match­mak­ing ser­vice.

From make- overs to ice bars and a bunch of free­bies, Re­becca told the Pais­ley Daily Ex­press she had noth­ing to lose.

“I had been sin­gle for a few months but wasn’t look­ing for a new re­la­tion­ship straight away,” Re­becca said.

“My friend had seen the ad­vert for the blind date and sug­gested that I ap­ply.

“I’ve al­ways been one of those peo­ple that is up for try­ing new things, so I thought I’d give it a go.”

When the big day ar­rived, the bi­ol­ogy teacher was given the VIP treat­ment from intu Brae­head.

Makeovers, shop­ping vouch­ers and ice bar passes were gifted to Re­becca on the day be­fore she met her date.

“It was such a good day I was re­ally pam­pered,” she added.

“This was all be­fore the date with James had even started.”

Hail­ing from Glas­gow, 30- year- old James Brown was se­lected as Re­becca’s top match for the blind date.

The pair were treated to a meal at Bar Varia, drinks in the ice bar and en­try into Grav­ity Tram­po­line Park, all of which was filmed by the intu B rae­head team.

“The date was so much fun and we got on well,” Re­becca said.

“It was re­ally well or­gan­ised. The two of us had a good laugh.”

Although the pair have no of­fi­cial Valen­tine’s Day plans, Re­becca main­tains that they are still in touch.

“We chat quite of­ten but we haven’t met up since our date,” she said.

“I’m sure we’ll keep chat­ting, but who knows what will hap­pen.”
