The weekend's events around the town begin with the annual Walk of Witness organised by Helensburgh’s church congregations, takeing place on Good Friday, April 7.

The walk begins at 10.30am at the Helensburgh Community Hub on East Princes Street and will stop on Lomond Street, outside St Joseph’s Church, before resuming at 11am.
