Minnie Driver, while filming "The Deep" for BBC recently, had cause to drive down Dumbarton High Street. In an interview she called the place depressing. (Dumbarton is the new Hollywood for BBC Drama).
Now this has caused quite a stushie locally! How dare she? It seems that it's alright for locals to voice this opinion, but certainly not something TV stars or Film Stars are allowed to say!
Of course the place is depressing, and that's why Save Dumbarton High Street has emerged as a powerful local group who are beginning to get things done. Come back, Minnie, in a year or two, and we'll show you the difference..... I hope!
