Craft Class Programme at the New Paisley Central Library

To celebrate the upcoming opening of our new Paisley Central Library, we have a varied programme of events and activities planned for our community.

As part of the Library Arts Programme, we have scheduled 8 individual craft classes aimed at adults running over November and December.
All classes are free and materials and provided. Due to limited spaces, bookings are limited to a maximum of 2 per person.

There is no referral criteria for these classes – they are open to everyone in our community.
Further information about these classes, and the other activities running, can be found on the What’s On section of our website: www.renfrewshirelibraries.co.uk
The direct booking link for these sessions can be found on our Eventbrite page.


Scottish Parliament Housing Panels

We are inviting tenants and landlords in the private rented sector to apply take part in two separate lived experience housing panels. The panels will work to share ideas and experiences, and make recommendations to Members of the Local Government, Housing and Planning Committee who will scrutinise proposals that the Scottish Government is making to change the laws relating to housing.
We would be very grateful if you could widely share the information to people who may be interested.
Further information is attached:

The Committee want to hear from different people in different circumstances living in different parts of the country. To inform the selection criteria we have looked at research and data on the characteristics of private renters and landlords in Scotland. Parliament staff will recruit the panels from these responses using selection criteria.
For those who would like to register to take part they can complete the survey by clicking on the link here.

For further information or for support to apply you can contact kate.smith@parliament.scot or PACT@parliament.scot
Deadline is Friday 01 December.
