Rosneath minister helped university grow

THIS second story features the second Mr Story — fellow Rosneath minister Robert Herbert Story, son of Robert Story.

Another new chapter for church tower

HELENSBURGH’S seafront Clock Tower was put up for sale last year by owners VisitScotland, who used it as a tourist information office, and it was bought recently by a local firm.

It will be the start of the fourth chapter in the life of what began as the Old Parish Church.
