Logie Baird, Alexander Fleming, James Watt and others shaped the modern world. Scotland can do this again. The image of Scotland as a land of innovation is shared and validated by international observers. We must now live up to that.
Alex Salmond, Former First Minister of Scotland, January 2012
The Heroes Centre deliberately sets out to create an environment of inspiration and creative freedom. We will nurture and encourage people to feel empowered, to realise that they have the capability and the tools readily available to them to change the world..that they can be John Logie Baird.
We’ll use the past and present to inspire the future.
This must change.
In addition to a unique learning space, the Heroes Center provides the community within Helensburgh with a social hub.
Currently there is no natural safe meeting place, out of School hours, for the area’s young people. We hope that over time the Centre – particularly Hucksters Cafe – will become to Go To drop in place.
But perhaps most importantly of all, the Heroes Centre provides a perfect platform for a community to embrace and celebrate inspirational locals.
Inspirational people add value to the whole community and they serve beyond individual interests to contribute to the greater public good and community prosperity.
