Helensburgh locals can enjoy an event exploring the whimsical world and history of Winnie the Pooh next week.

The Arts Society Lomond and Argyll will hold its first talk of the new year in the Victoria Halls on Tuesday, January 16.

The event will start at 10.30am, with coffee available from 10am.

In his talk The Art of Winnie the Pooh, guest speaker James Campbell will lift the lid on the collaboration between author A.A. Milne and illustrator E.H. Shephard, who together brought Winnie the Pooh to life almost 100 years ago.
