Circus group flies high with Scotland’s first specialist trapeze rig

Community Circus Paisley has become home to Scotland’s only full-scale flying trapeze equipment, giving budding performers, hobbyists and the local community access to unique experiences and training.
The new kit comes as a result of funding from responsible finance provider Social Investment Scotland (SIS), which has provided a loan of £85,000 to cover the cost of the new apparatus. Full story on page 15.

The Forgotten Airman

It may be something Howwood villagers are not aware of, but in a field on Hartfield Farm, there is a memorial stone to the United States Army Air Force (USAAF) airman Herman C. ‘Jack’ Carey. The community council have been working towards replacing the stone and trace Jack’s relatives. If you can help or for more information, the contact details are available on page 27.
