“Everyone wants to have a cracking time over Easter and what better way than to celebrate with the full family in your local area with our big spring celebration?

"Our event is for the kids to enjoy, while the adults can take full advantage of our promotional offers.

“With the rise of online shopping and out-of-town shopping centres, it can be a struggle for High Street businesses, and we want to champion their uniqueness and showcase what’s on your doorstep to Glasgow.

"From our retailers, bar and restaurants, there really is something for all, and we hope to encourage people to wander west, explore your local shops in the sunshine, spot our cabbie and embrace everything the West End has to offer.”
