My Story

Paisley Buddie Lindsay Webster, 23, shares some heartfelt words about her hometown and what it means to her. Listen to her heartfelt poem to Paisley.

My name's Lindsay Webster and I'm from Paisley. I'm a student at the City of Glasgow College and I'm a volunteer at Create Paisley.

I'm absolutely gutted that Paisley has just missed out on being named UK City of Culture 2021 but everyone can have an immense sense of pride at what we have achieved.

There's so many exciting things happening in Paisley and this fantastic journey will continue.


I recently took part in a workshop in collaboration with the Roundhouse in London and Create Paisley as part of the town's bid to be UK City of Culture 2021.

As part of the workshop, I wrote a poem imagining Paisley as a person and have written it as though I am talking to them. I will share this with you now.
