They invited locals to visit The Bridge at Helensburgh Parish Church for hot drinks, baked goods, fun activities provided by Bounce, Craft and Shine, and craft stalls courtesy of the Helensburgh and Lomond Artisans Association.

Administration manager Jane Worsfold said: “A number of local crafters from Helensburgh and Lomond Artisans Association all took a stall selling their wares.

“We were very delighted at the large turn of people from the local area, many who support Contraflow in various ways.

“We raised over £560 and would like to express a big thank you everyone who came along to support Contraflow, plus the management committee and trustees who ran the tea room and baking stall.”

Contraflow was established in May 1998 after churches in Helensburgh and Lomond came together to create a collaborative project for the area’s young people.

Contraflow provides activities for children who live within the area of Arrochar, Cardross, Kilcreggan, and Luss.
