Arrochar, Tarbet and Ardlui Heritage Group

The story of the setting up and growth of Arrochar, Tarbet and Ardlui Heritage Group
written by founder Mrs Mary Haggarty.

2002—2003

ONE day in 2002 while sitting in Arrochar Church reading the Pews News, I saw that our minister, who covers Luss as well as Arrochar, was asking the congregation to look out their old photos and articles so that they could be displayed in the new Pilgrimage centre in Luss.

Being absolutely ‘planted’ in the soil of Arrochar, Tarbet and Ardlui I was horrified — something else disappearing from our villages. So by the time the sermon had finished I had made up my mind that I would need to do something.

Helensburgh Police Court

A HELENSBURGH institution left the town in 2009 after 173 years . . . the local court.

The District Court sat for the last time in the burgh on Wednesday December 9, with JP Andrew Nicolson from Rhu on the bench. From 2010 it and all the other local courts are being held in the enlarged and refurbished court building in Dumbarton.

Helensburgh and Gareloch Horticultural Society

THE existing minutes of Helensburgh and Gareloch Horticultural Society date from 1926: whatever records there were prior to that date have either been lost or destroyed.

However, there is documentary evidence that Flower Shows were held in Helensburgh as early as 1850.

Helensburgh Burns Club revived

IN the year of the 250th anniversary of the birth of Robert Burns, Helensburgh once again has a Burns Club.

In the weeks prior to Burns Night on January 25 2009, a group of local people got together, formed a steering group, and revived Helensburgh Burns Club which had ceased to exist in about 1951.

Loch Lomond's Rescue Boat

 

LIVES are saved on Loch Lomond, Scotland’s biggest and most popular inland loch, thanks to the efforts of a Luss-based group of stalwart and brave volunteers.

Throughout the years the Loch Lomond rescue boat has gone from strength to strength, thanks to grant assistance from the local council, and the goodwill of the public and local businesses.
