Motion text

That this House congratulates everyone involved in the recent opening of the Helensburgh Heroes Centre, a centre that recognises and celebrates the enormous contribution made by the people of Helensburgh and the surrounding district in areas as diverse as television, sport, music, science, art, politics, literature, architecture and film-making, including the inventor and television pioneer John Logie Baird, the Hollywood superstar Deborah Kerr and Eunice Murray, the renowned suffragette who in 1918 was the first Scottish woman to seek election to the UK Parliament; believes the Helensburgh Heroes Centre with its visitor centre, exhibition, shop and 1950s-style America café will be a very welcome addition to the already numerous tourist attractions the town has to offer; acknowledges that without the enormous effort and dedication of a small group of local people, most notably Phil Worms, Linda Worms, Stuart Duncan, Professor Michael Baker and Fiona Baker, this ambitious, culturally-important project would not have been possible; and wishes the Helensburgh Heroes Centre every success in the future.
