And at the fall of night – This city’s made of lights

Ah the wonders of digital…

Next week our fourth #DigiRen meeting will take place. What’s that you may ask… Well, it’s an event aimed at sharing digital ideas and practice with the aim of promoting digital participation in Renfrewshire. At each meeting we have some great guest speakers and this time on the agenda is @lauren_gilmour1  & @sparkybrain . Lauren & Paul have been working had across Renfrewshire during the last few months to promote all things @Digi_ren –  including the promotion and recruitment of digital volunteers – see DigiRen Volunteering . Encouraging people to get online can be difficult and we’re aware that sometimes digital exclusion can be linked to economical exclusion. Lauren & Paul are looking to help local people benefit from going online – and the more willing volunteers they can attract the better. If you’re keen to help or just want to know more tweet them.


If you’re in Paisley at any time over the next few weeks you’re bound to bump into the ‘Pride’ – fantastic multi-coloured lions that have popped up all over the centre of town if you want to know more check out Pride of Paisley . You’ll love them…
