The Helensburgh local branch of Save the Children recently held a very successful cheese and wine tasting at the Old Pump House in the town’s Sinclair Street.

The intimate atmosphere of Moyra and Malcolm Stewart’s beautiful lounge created the perfect ambience for the evening which was attended by 24 people.

The expert for the evening was Sue Aikman, from Ardardan Estate in Cardross.
