A former pub in Paisley is to be transformed into a new community hub.

The Cellar Bar, in Lady Lane, is being renovated by charity Eat Up, which provides food to people in need.

It is hoped the the new community hub will open in around eight weeks' time to help feed the community and serve as a venue for unsigned music artists.

Staff at Eat Up are looking for trade volunteers to help renovate the pub, as well as materials for roof and stone work, plastering, electrics, painting and plumbing.

The charity is also on the search for a catering company that can donate a cooker, fridge and other items for the venue's kitchen.

"The hub will be for all the community and open seven days a week."
