To support this belief there is abundant evidence, past and present, that people with Helensburgh & Lomond connections have made major contributions to society at the local, national and international level. Our vision has always been that by celebrating our past we may inspire and shape our future. We hope that this book will help us demonstrate to people how rich and diverse our communities are.”
