HELENSBURGH Heritage Trust had a stall in the main hall of the Victoria Hall in the Helensburgh 2010 Exhibition from October 6-9.

The Trust stall featured posters about the burgh's early days, an opportunity to see this website on a laptop computer, a display of 100 of the 1,050 old photos from the Trust Photo Gallery on a digital photo frame, a televisor model, details of Trust membership, application forms and the opportunity to buy the two books published by the Trust. A director was present at the stall during the opening hours.

The exhibition was staged by Helensburgh Rotary Club and followed similar exhibitions in 1970, 1980, 1990 and 2000, all with the aim of demonstrating to local residents, old and new, the huge variety of activities available in the area.

Coffees, teas and light refreshments were available.

The official opening was performed on the Wednesday evening (October 6) by Councillor Vivien Dance, who was introduced by Helensburgh Rotary Club president Dave Campbell. Trust directors Nigel Allan and Alistair McIntyre are pictured at the Trust stall. Photo by Donald Fullarton.
