St Peter's funding now in place

WITH major funding now in place, construction works will begin at St Peter's at Cardross later this year.

Exhibition features local buildings

THE Anderson (Local Collection) Trust exhibition from January to June upstairs in Helensburgh Library on West King Street focuses on the built environment of Helensburgh and surrounding area.
