Pals will be sitting pretty thanks to donation
Visitors to a spruced up park will have the perfect place to rest their legs thanks to a brand new bench.
Community volunteers from Pals of the Privies have been working hard over the past year to transform Glencoats Park in Ferguslie Park, known locally as the Privies.
They’ve had great success so far with a popular superhero trail, fairy garden and community events all bringing the space back into use.
Now they’ve had a bespoke bench created and donated by City Gate Construction in the heart of the park.
Karen Campbell, chair of Pals of the Privies, said everyone was very grateful for the bench.
She said: “The bench is near the Glencoats Drive entrance to the park. It says Ferguslie across the back and looks great.
“We are very grateful to City Gate Construction for their kind donation.”
Karen said the group’s recent Halloween event attracted around 300 people to the park, despite the wet weather on the night.
And a laser tag event is also expected to have more than 100 people enjoying the park.
A City Gate Construction (CGC) spokesman said: “We were delighted to help out and this new bench undoubtedly contributes to the regeneration of this area.
“CGC applauds the hard work and effort put in to transform this piece of land and it reflects the community spirit which exists in Ferguslie Park.
“CGC is proud of our Paisley roots and we remain committed to helping our communities.”
