New Baby Changing Room...
We are delighted to bring you the news that our new Baby Room is now open.
We have all experienced that moment when a nappy needs changing, or baby needs feeding or it's simply all got too much for the little ones when shopping is not quite finished.
The facility will give parents and guardians a comfortable safe area to attend to their needs offering the entire requirement that anyone visiting the centre with a baby or small child would require.
Our staff Shirley and Jane will be in attendance during trading hours to ensure that you needs are met and the area is well maintained.
Tribute is a Lifesaver
THE family of former Clydebank High pupil Scott Docherty have said they hope new life-saving devices recently installed in the shopping centre will mean no other family will have to experience the pain they faced.
Since the death of their son in August 2011 as a result of Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome (SADS) aged just 17, Scott's mum Norma, her husband Andy and sister Lilian have campaigned tirelessly to make defibrillators readily available in the community.
Through a variety of fundraising measures the family have raised thousands of pounds and last week donated one of the life-saving devices to Clyde Shopping Centre in order to help restore the heart rhythm of anyone who suffers a heart-attack while out.
On Thursday Scott's mum, Norma Docherty, 52, told the Post she hoped the gesture would mean Scott's memory would live on.
She said: "I would just like to thank everyone for their kindness by donating to help with the purchase of the defibrillator. A lot of people use the shopping centre so let's hope someone, some day can be saved from having this here.
"Nobody ever thinks things like this can happen to them so it also raises awareness of SADS. My life will never be the same again and I don't wish that on anyone.
"The main thing is hopefully somebody will be saved - I feel as if we have got Scott to thank for it.
"He was the sort of boy every mother would have wanted he was like my best friend. He was a very down to earth boy and he had lots of friends who would come to him for advice.
"He never had a bad bone in his body and he never had any enemies, he was a lovely boy. I feel I want his memory to be kept alive as much as I can. I know I'll never get him back but I wouldn't want somebody else to go through such a thing."
Anne Jolly, Founder of charity SADS UK, added: "SADS UK is pleased that The Clyde Shopping centre will benefit from having defibrillators on the premises to restart the heart if there is a cardiac arrest on the premises. Using CPR alone provides a five per cent chance of survival but using CPR along with the defibrillator increases the chance of survival 10 fold, giving the person a 50 per cent chance of survival - this is why SADS UK are so passionate about putting this life-saving equipment in place."
A spokeswoman for the Clyde Shopping Centre added: "It was so tragic for the family but they have done so much by raising money and providing the defibrillators to the area. Our first aid staff in the centre are now fully trained on using the equipment and one of them will always be duty in the centre. It it helps save one person's life then they have paid for themselves."
Last year we told how Scott's family had donated a new state-of-the art defibrillator to his former school which could help save the life of pupils and staff.
Clyde Shopping Centre's Customers have done it again, with their generosity they have helped to raise a staggering £1000.00 for Erskine Hospital.

Andrew Forrester Centre Manager said "This is a very important award and one that everyone connected with the centre has worked hard to achieve. The award means the standards and procedures are in place to offer one of the most important things to our customers - a safe shopping environment. It also recognises the good working relationship that we have with the police, local authority and our retailers.

This of course has wider benefits for the whole town by bringing in more visitors to the area from further afield".

Its Safety First as Kids Club helps Lost Children.
Clydebank Shopping Centre is going to new lengths to tackle the the frightning moment when children vanish in the crowd.
Children who register with Clydebanks Shopping centre's new Harry the Otter Kids Club are given a membership number that logs their details, including an an emergency contact phone number.
This number is then printed on the free wristband and put on the child when they check in at the centre's new customer service desk, at the junction of Sylvania Way and Britannia Way.The Shop safely with Harry scheme, for children aged three to ten, means staff can identify them quickly if something happens.
Segway!! Comes to Clydebank!!
The Hour's Bruce Devlin headed to the Clydebank Shopping Centre in Dunbartonshire, Scotland, to learn how to be a security officer Paul Blart style.
The Clydebank Shopping Centre offers Segway as a mode of transport to their security officers. The shopping centre is over half a mile long so this new mode of transport means that they can get to any situation faster and are more obvious to the shoppers if they are needed.
The Hour sent Bruce Devlin along to try his hand at being a mall cop. He met up with Alex, a security officer who has recently been trained how to use the Segway.
He told Bruce that to be a security officer he would have to be polite and be good at first aid and mouth-to-mouth. Bruce wasn't too happy to hear that and joked, "I've never been kissed, like Susan Boyle."
He would also have to be good at customer service, have good customer relations and most importantly be clean shaven and have a smart appearance. Not much like Bruce at all.
Alex showed Bruce the Segway and told him: "It's all about your balance. You lean forward to go."
Bruce wasn't too impressed by it and thought it looked like a motorised pogo stick. He got kitted out in a uniform, a badge and a hat and pimped up his Segway with a pink feather boa. "It's the only way to be visible," he told Alex.
As Bruce made his way around the shopping mall he spoke to the customers and had one of them run out of a shop so he could chase her. Very professional.
So how did his first day go? "I think it went well," he told Alex. "I helped people, showed them where the shops were, I spoke to them, I was everything you asked me. Have I got the job?"
It was a no for now but Bruce decided to keep his Segway.
