Finding relics of the past

THE OLD saying that if you go down to the woods today you are sure of a big surprise certainly rings true for a very successful Helensburgh and district group of enthusiasts about the area’s heritage.

Actually members of the burgh-based North Clyde Archaeological Society more of than not go up to the woods and indeed the summits of local hills in their quest for relics of days long gone by.

Burgh BB celebrates centenary

MEMBERS, past members and friends of the 1st Helensburgh Boys Brigade had plenty to celebrate on Tuesday October 25 2016 — the centenary of the formation of the company.

Protests against Orange walk

AN ORANGE Walk took place in Helensburgh on Saturday June 28 2014 despite much opposition beforehand from the people of the town.

The aim of Orange Walks is to celebrate the victory of the Protestant King William III — also known as William of Orange — over the Roman Catholic King James VII of Scotland and II of England at the Battle of the Boyne in Ireland in 1690.
