July 2021 – The Shed re-opens and Skeoch display begins
After 16 months closed The Shed was re-opened on Monday 5th July with restricted numbers attending, under protocols compliant with Covid Protection Level 1.
The Skeoch had been in store since returning from the paint shop but re-opening the Shed and the local Covid Protection Level falling to 0 provided the opportunity to unveil the finished car to Dalbeattie and local communities.
The first public outing took place on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th July when the car and project storyboard was displayed on the bandstand in Colliston Park, Dalbeattie.
The next outing was on Sunday 25th July at Threave Garden & Estate, Castle Douglas where the Skeoch was displayed centre front of the Singer Motor Club/Hillman Owners Club annual outing. The same evening the Skeoch moved to Robertson Gemini’s showroom in Cotton Street, Castle Douglas. It will remain on display until the 13th August 2021 as part of Robertson’s ‘100yrs in business’ celebrations.
Meanwhile in the Shed 3D printing work re-starts on building a 1/3 scale model of the Skeoch.
