News in brief: Roof repairs warning, drumming classes, shop may be demolished

Police are urging residents in the Helensburgh area to be wary of cold callers offering ‘roof repairs’ after last month’s high winds.

A spokesperson for Police Scotland in South Argyll, Helensburgh and Lomond warned: “Just say ‘no’ – if in doubt dial 101.”

Free samba drumming classes are staring tomorrow (Thursday) at 8pm in Kilcreggan Primary School.
