    We have managed to compile the feedback from the Commodore Event and here it is in its raw form.

    "Great ideas – something Helensburgh needs. Cinema desperately needed especially."

    "Let’s get Helensburgh back on the map. This is a good step forward."

    "Fabulous presentation! Just what Helensburgh and my family needs. Absolutely need a cinema and a family diner. Also love ideas for reservoirs."

    "Well done – very imaginative. Puts down a marker for everyone putting in a bid for the school."

    We have been given provisional permission by Fairwood Music Publishing to record a charity/community version of the classic Bowie/Eno song 'Heroes', subject to obtaining the relevant MCPS & PRS licenses. It is Helensburgh Heroes intention that the recording will be released commercially, with any proceeds going towards the various projects that Company is involved with - particularly the Clyde Street Centre (should our bid be successful).

    The Heroes Centre - A Centre of Digital Excellence in the spirtual birthplace of Television

    The Charity, Helensburgh Heroes, has secured a three storey Victorian Warehouse and goods yard within the centre of the Scottish West Coast town of Helensburgh.

    A team of professionals has been created, tasked with the challenge of converting this former railway building into a Digital Academy & Entertainment Centre.

  • And although the Burgh is, in a generous sense, a suburb of Glasgow, it is in secret communicable relation with the wilds.
