We want communities that carry out decision making in a collaborative environment, providing for a balanced resolution of competing interests whilst regarding cultural resources as key community assets to be shared and enjoyed by all.
The Heroes Centre at 28 Sinclair Street has been designed to showcase the potential of a much more ambitious and larger facility that will attract visitors to it as a tourist destination in its own right, while also providing facilities and services looked for by members of the Helensburgh and District community.
To this end we have created a Visitor Centre, endorsed by VisitScotland, to provide information and services to tourists as well as a selection of memorabilia and souvenirs reflecting our rich heritage and culture. Second, we have created an Exhibition area to display a small selection of artefacts and other objects associated with inspirational people with a Helensburgh connection.
With the approval and support of the Baird family, we believe that we have a collection of international importance that is an international tourist attraction in its own right and the centrepiece for our Wall of Fame celebrating over 100 notable individuals.
In order to raise the necessary funding, estimated at approximately £3 million, to refurbish premises near the town centre it is vital that the Charity is able to demonstrate both the potential value of the project and Community support for it.
We need evidence of ways in which individuals can contribute to demonstrate their personal support for the project and one such method is becoming a Heroes Member.
We will be announcing details of our Membership scheme in the very near future. If you would like to receive details of the scheme when it is published please contact us HERE
