Renfrewshire Council

What's Our Story?

You can't fail to have noticed that everyone is talking about Paisley and Renfrewshire right now!

The 2021 bid has given us a unique opportunity to tell our untold story to a national, even an international, audience. Local support for the bid is tremendous - wherever I go, it's on everyone's lips.

But the City of Culture bid is only one part of our ambitious plans to put Paisley and Renfrewshire on the map. We have a great story to tell - let's tell it to the world.

Next week, we will be launching a new What's Our Story? campaign and we'll be asking you to share your story with us.

We want to know all the things that make our area special and why visitors should spend their time with us. What makes Paisley and Renfrewshire great? You tell us!

This will also be a chance to share your ideas about how we can transform Paisley's future. What would you like to see included and celebrated in a year of culture in 2021?

The timing couldn't be better as we get ready for Sma' Shot Day when our communities will come together in celebration of one of the most famous stories in our history - the defiance of the weavers in the face of exploitation from the mill owners.

Every story, every voice and every idea is important. This can all be shaped by the people who matter most - the people who live here, work here, play here, and hold Paisley and Renfrewshire close to their hearts."

Look out for more information next week and share your story with us.
