THE Helensburgh and Lomond Civic Centre's new events team welcomed the Helensburgh and District Round Table and guests to the venue's first Burns supper last weekend.

The event attracted an eager audience ready to celebrate the life, work and legacy of Robert Burns in traditional fashion.

And at Rhu Hall the following night, a family ‘tartan disco’ kicked off a new year of fun family events at the community facility.

Among those attending the Burns supper on Friday night was Helensburgh musician and composer Eilidh Steel, who said the event brought back memories of attending clubs at what used to be the Clyde Street community education centre, and told how she felt “very lucky” to be joining some of the people who encouraged her to learn traditional music when she was younger.
