The Logie Baird TV set in the local library was a constant reminder for me that you can come from a small town like Helensburgh and go out into the world and do whatever you want."
Tom Vaughan, Helensburgh born Heroes Centre Ambassador and film director
Inspiration and Aspiration are the central themes running throughout the Heroes Centre, and nowhere will this be more evident than the building’s three storey Wall of Fame.
One entire wall of the building will be dedicated to the men and women that have achieved so much in their lives and whose actions have enriched the society in which we live.
Each Inductee will be represented with a Heroes Centre plaque, a story board and where possible original memorabilia associated with their lives. Over the past few years we’ve managed to collect items as diverse as Emma Richard’s Around Alone sailing jacket, Short and Dalziel’s (Jimmy Logan’s parents) original music hall accordion, original artwork from Look In magazine featuring Slik right through to the world’s oldest known complete Television Sales Catalogue produced by John Logie Baird.
Visitors to the Centre will literally transverse the Wall via a three storey hanging staircase or lift with viewing galleries on every floor.
Spectacularly lit with stunning lighting and digital wallpapers, the Wall of Fame will create the inspirational environment designed to generate a whole range of emotions – from respect to awe – in the Centre’s visitors but above all we hope that is engenders encouragement.
