GARY LAMONT: DROPPING THE SOAP!’ TOUR 2018

CLAIRE FROM STEPS, MARTINE MCCUTCHEON,
GRAHAM NORTON, DAWN STEELE & MICHELLE MCMANUS
GUEST STAR IN ‘GARY LAMONT: DROPPING THE SOAP!’ TOUR 2018
Taking in an extensive tour of Scotland join Gary Lamont: Dropping the Soap! opening at Falkirk Town Hall 16 February. It’s the starriest show in town with guest appearances from 3 chart-topping popstars and the king of chat himself!  

Gary Lamont recently left the popular BBC Scotland soap opera ‘River City’ last year, his character Robbie Fraser leaving Shieldinch in a limousine with popstar Claire Richards.  
But while Robbie’s been hired as the hairdresser for the latest Steps tour, what’s next for Gary himself?  That’s the focus of his new comedy cabaret which sees Gary ponder his next move with the help of his pals.
Says Gary, “I’m loving doing my new show and especially working with all my amazing guest stars.  Claire from Steps is my childhood idol, Graham Norton is my favourite TV host, Dawn Steele is my favourite actress, Martine McCutcheon is my spirit animal and Michelle McManus is normally so expensive I can’t afford her.  So to have them all agree to take part and send themselves up has been incredible”.
Interview with Gary Lamont by Peter Greenwood of www.paisley.org.uk

Claire Richards “Gary managed to rope me in to film his exit from River City and now he’s made me take part in his show.  I have rather a lot on at the minute with the Steps tour so hopefully this will be the end of it all. If not I will consider a restraining order!  Seriously though, I loved having the chance to take part in Gary’s new show”.
Graham Norton “I absolutely loved Gary’s last show so I was happy to help out with his latest.  Who needs soap when you’ve got buckets of charm, hilarity and song like Gary? His show is a joyous revelation”.

John Sutton: It’s been a fantastic place to play

St Mirren’s game on Saturday away to Falkirk marked the last game of the season, but also marked the end of some players’ tenure with the club.
One player who will move on this summer that will remain in the hearts of St Mirren supporters, is striker John Sutton.
Speaking to Buddievision, Sutton spoke about how emotional he was feeling in his last game, as he got to run on to the park for one final time in St Mirren colours.

He said: “It’s been four fantastic years in different ways. From promotion to staying up, and being part of that has just been incredible. But more than that, just coming in to work every day; the people at the club who cook the lunches, people who put things on for the kids etc.
"The fans have been fantastic, they’ve been with us everywhere, through thick and thin, through good times and bad.
"It’s going to be a shame, but at the same time I’m looking forward to a new challenge somewhere. I just hope St Mirren keep going from strength to strength." 

Sutton returned to The Buddies in 2016 and played a vital role in helping the team avoid relegation to the third tier of Scottish football. He scored 13 goals during the 2016/17 campaign, but insists that he always believed the team were good enough to survive the drop. 

He continued: "Last season was strange, because Hibs were in the league and Dundee Utd were really strong. We felt we had a good chance with the calibre of players we had.
"But we just never got it together, and obviously we put ourselves in such a bad situation that people looked at it like an unbelievable escape. So we’ve just taken that momentum forward. 
"The young boys have come in and done brilliant. You don’t even think they’re young anymore – Morgy, Magennis, Bairdy – they’re established players.
"Everyone has just done fantastic and it’s a brilliant club to be at when things are going well. In fairness, it’s not so bad when things are going badly, people still get behind you. It’s been a fantastic place to play." 

The towering centre forward’s first spell at the club started in 2005 when he was brought to the club by Gus MacPherson from Dundee, where he assisted the club to a Challenge Cup and League double. Now picking up his second league winners medal with The Saints he has firmly cemented himself as a club legend.   

He added: "I don’t know about that, I don’t think about that. I always think individual awards in football are funny, because it’s a team game.
"In my first spell here, I think there was joke that Simon Lappin was getting me a move somewhere; the amount of balls he put on my head. You’re reliant on service and you’re reliant on the boys at the back.
 "The four years I’ve played with the team has been fantastic with what we’ve achieved. More than that, it’s great to do it for the supporters out there.
"All the best for the future and hopefully you’ll see St Mirren towards the top end of the Premier League and maybe picking up some silverware again."

Parents get to swim with their water babies for free

PARENTS of babies under 12 months old can now go swimming with their children for free at all Renfrewshire Leisure-run pools.

The new initiative was launched after mum, Laura Bartlett, from Johnstone approached her local councillor, Jacqueline Cameron about people on parental leave not getting a concessionary price to go swimming, even though they are being paid less money, or getting no wage from their employers.
Councillor Cameron raised the issue with the chair of Renfrewshire Leisure’s board, fellow councillor Lisa-Marie Hughes and it was decided to introduce the free swimming for parents who come to pools with their babies, who are under a year old.

Laura, who regularly goes swimming with her daughter, Rosie, now aged one, said: “I think this is fantastic news and it’s a great encouragement for parents of young babies to go swimming together.
“I’ve been taking Rosie to the pool at Johnstone Sports Hub since she was about three months old and it’s great for her development. It’s an activity we enjoy doing together.
“I didn’t think it was fair that I was having to pay full price to go swimming, even though I wasn’t bringing in as much money while I was on maternity leave and there would be other people in the same position as me.”
Councillor Cameron added: “When Laura came to see me and explained the situation I thought hers was such a good idea I wished I’d thought of it myself!
“I spoke to Councillor Hughes as chair of Renfrewshire Leisure and she agreed we should give free access to swimming pools for people on parental leave with babies under 12 months.”
Councillor Hughes said: “We want to encourage as many people as possible to live healthy lifestyles. It’s a good idea to introduce babies to the water at an early age and they love being in the pool.
“As a board, we didn’t think it was right that if parents were bringing home less money because they were on parental leave, they should pay full price when they came to one of our pools with their babies.”

SNP Councillors welcome youth commission to research services for young people.

A team of young people are aiming to improve mental health services by leading a study, commissioned by the Scottish Government. This comes as part of the 10 year Mental Health Strategy launched last year.

Cllr Jim Paterson

In a partnership between the Scottish Government, Young Scot and the Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH), 22 members of the Youth Commission on Mental Health Services will begin work this week in an effort to reshape the support available.

The Youth Commission will work together to develop recommendations for ministers and service providers on how child and adolescent mental health services can be improved.

Mental health is a key theme of the Scottish Governments Year of Young People 2018.

Renfrewshire Council’s Convener of Education and Children’s services Cllr Jim Paterson has welcomed this progress:

“I am pleased to see that this Commission will begin work this week. This is the Year of Young People 2018 in Scotland and it is extremely encouraging to know that this study will give young people the chance to shape and develop their own strategies and ideas on the best ways to improve mental health services for them.”

 “This commission gives an opportunity to deliver real change, based on evidence and experience, and create a society and health service that better meets the mental and physical health needs of our children and young people.”

“Here in Renfrewshire, the SNP fully understand that young people should be involved in decisions that affect them. I am very proud that Renfrewshire was one of the first local authorities to have a young person put forward a motion to Council which will see young people in Renfrewshire involved in the development of the Personal, Social and Health Education.”

Vice Chair of the Renfrewshire Health and Social Care Integration Joint Board Cllr Jacqueline Cameron added:

“Improving mental health in young people is a key aim for the SNP group in Renfrewshire Council and it is encouraging to know that future policy can be built around work undertaken by young people themselves.”

“The Scottish Government have been very supportive in the innovative ways that we can improve the mental health needs of our younger generations. This commission is a step forward in improving the mental health of young people in Renfrewshire.”

THE DUKE OF GLOUCESTER SEES HOW COLLEGE STUDENTS ARE PRESERVING OUR HERITAGE AND BUILDING OUR FUTURE

His Royal Highness The Duke of Gloucester visited West College Scotland today (Thursday 26 April 2018) to see how students are gaining the skills to preserve our built heritage, as well as designing modern homes for the 21st century.

His Royal Highness’ visit was hosted by West College Scotland Principal and Chief Executive, Audrey Cumberford.
The Duke’s first stop was at the Institute of Construction and Engineering (ICE) building on the Paisley campus, where he was able to see how old craft skills, such as slating, stonemasonry, lead bossing and carpentry are being handed down to a new generation of apprentices. Students, College lecturers, and industry trainers were able to describe to His Royal Highness how new technologies were assisting this process.

Tommy Campbell, who is the College’s Head of Construction, said:
“The Duke showed an interest and understanding of the important work we are doing.  The west of Scotland has a large number of listed buildings and we are keen to make our contribution to maintaining them to the best possible condition.
“Our students, staff and external partners, were delighted to be able to showcase our work with His Royal Highness.”
At the Abercorn Conference Centre, The Duke met some Photography students and spoke to them about their prize-winning portfolios.
His Royal Highness was then introduced to the team behind the Designers of Tomorrow Project, a collaborative initiative between the College and the Glasgow-based architects, Neat Living.  This award-winning initiative sees Neat Living giving “live” projects to Interior Design students, as well as mentoring them and providing feedback on their designs for modern, sustainable homes.
“We are very proud of our relationship with Neat Living, as it shows students the realities of work in the field of interior design, including the pressure of pitching ideas to qualified architects”, said Head of Creative Industries, Paul McLaughlin. “The students were thrilled to chat about their designs to His Royal Highness.”
The Duke also met the construction team involved in turning 150-year-old roof timbers into public benches for use in West Dunbartonshire.  The beams of Oregon Redwood were salvaged from the Old Academy building in Dumbarton town centre and donated to West College Scotland. The efforts of the College’s Greenock construction team have ensured that the people of the area will continue to enjoy the benefits of this ancient wood.
After the visit, West College Scotland Principal and Chief Executive, Audrey Cumberford, said:
“The visit gave us the opportunity to show The Duke of Gloucester a small part of what we do, in an interesting and engaging way. It was especially pleasing that we were able to demonstrate our College’s commitment to both conserving the past and building the future.”

Match Report: Falkirk 1-0 St Mirren

The curtain came down on St Mirren’s season today, as they lost 1-0 to Falkirk for the second time in 11 days.
With both clubs’ fate already decided for next season, there was nothing at stake in today’s match; but the Paisley side were hoping to end an incredible season on a high, but it wasn’t to be.
There was a nice reception before the game for Alex Smith, who Saints fans will know from the role he played in our 1987 Scottish Cup win. He received a standing ovation from both sets of fans, as he is set to retire from football.
St Mirren started the game very well, looking confident on the ball as they had their first chance of the game. Stelios Demetriou found himself in plenty of space on the left, as he drove in on goal and unleashed a wicked shot from 20 yards which was deflected behind by Falkirk keeper Robbie Mutch.
This strike on the sixth minute was the best chance both teams had the entire half, with most efforts coming from long range. Despite the lack of goal threat, there was still some nice football being played by both teams.
Late on in the first half, Louis Longridge picked up on a loose ball deep in Saints half and tried to manoeuvre his way into the box. The tricky winger was close to succeeding, but Mark Hill stayed with him the whole way and made a great tackle on the midfielder to clear the ball from danger.
Right on the stroke of half time The Buddies had a decent effort to put themselves in front. Myles Hippolyte, who caused their defence problems all day, burst through the centre of the park and slipped the ball forward to Gavin Reilly in the danger area. The ball was running away from goal though, so the team’s top goalscorer didn’t get a great connection as the ball was held comfortably by the Falkirk stopper. 
Half Time: Falkirk 0-0 St Mirren
The second half was a bit more livelier than the first, as Falkirk had a freekick on the edge of the box only one minute after the restart. It was a good effort from Joe McKee as it narrowly went over the crossbar, but Craig Samson appeared to have it covered anyway.
The home side had an excellent chance to put themselves ahead five minutes later. A ball from the right was floated to the back post where Craig Sibbald was standing alone and struck a fine volley on goal, only to be denied by a wonder save from Craig Samson.
Saints started to grow into the game though. On the 63rd minute Hippolyte waltzed past Falkirk’s Jordan McGhee and delivered a great cross into the box which was cleared only as far as Morgan on the edge of the area. The winger tried a first time effort, but just never caught the ball correctly as he blazed it over the bar and into the crowd.
Reilly then had an effort from similar range eight minutes later. This time though Reilly found the target and it was in all the way, but a very smart save from Mutch managed to turn it away for a corner.
Another good chance for Saints fell on the 76th minute, when Hippolyte won a feekick on the left side of the box. Morgan stepped up to take it and nearly scored, when he decided to shoot instead of cross – which caught out the Falkirk keeper. It was a good, clean strike, but was just ever so slightly high of the goal, as The Buddies were getting closer and closer.
St Mirren’s best chance of the game came on the 84th minute though, as Morgan broke away from the Falkirk defence near the halfway line and like only he can, pulled away from them with ease. He was clean through on goal, with only the goalkeeper to beat, but his effort was somehow blocked by Robbie Mutch.
The team were left to rue their chances two minutes later, when Ryan Blair, having only been on the park for three minutes, unleashed an unstoppable strike that struck Samson’s left post and went in to send the Bairns fans wild. 
The game ended 1-0 to Falkirk as The Saints were left gutted after another late winner from Paul Hartley’s team. The Paisley faithful didn’t care though, as they rounded off one of the most successful season’s in the club’s history.
