MEMBERS of the Helensburgh and Lomond Foodbank team will give a presentation on their work at a meeting of the town's community council this week.

The group will look back on its work during 2018 and look forward to the challenges facing the community project in the new year when they address Helensburgh Community Council (HCC) on Thursday, January 31.

The food bank was among 15 groups to secure funding from Argyll and Bute Council's Supporting Communities Fund in 2018-19.

The group applied for £2,000 from the authority "to source and deliver advice and guidance to clients in poverty, to enable them to maximise their income and develop a personal action plan out of poverty".

This week's meeting will also feature a presentation by members of the Helensburgh Seafront Development Project on their plans to breathe new life into the town's pier and West Bay area.

Thursday's meeting takes place at the Victoria Halls at 7pm and members of the public are, as always, welcome to attend and to ask questions of HCC members, the two community groups, and the town's Argyll and Bute councillors.
