Big Yin pops in
Dalbeattie Men’s Shed had a visit fromThe BigYin last week.
Comedian Sir Billy Connolly popped in with a film crew working on his latestTV series as he tours around Scotland.
He delighted members at the shed – named the best in Britain last year – whose current projects include a replica of a Skeoch Utility Car.
Secretary Geoff Allison said:“He was fantastic. He seemed to be genuinely interested in the shed and nothing was too much trouble.There were a few flashes of humour, he was happy to pose for selfies and he stayed for a few hours.
“He took a particular interest in the car, but he was also interested in the other projects.”
Members of the shed were sworn to secrecy about Billy’s arrival, only being told when he was coming a few days beforehand.
After visiting Dalbeattie, he travelled toWigtown for the next round of filming.The show is likely to be screened later this year or early in 2019.
