Local MP, Ross Thomson MP, visited Newton Dee on 26 April 2019.
He was given a tour of Newton Dee, and met a group of co-workers likely to be affected by Brexit. Ross Thomson MP heard first hand the co-workers’ concerns about the potential impact of Brexit upon Newton Dee and upon the other Camphill communities in Scotland, as well as about the difficulties over the past year of obtaining volunteer Visas for people from non-EU countries wishing to volunteer at Newton Dee.
Ulrike Mall, a representative from Newton Dee’s Management Group, said after the visit of Ross Thomson MP, to Newton Dee:
We were delighted to welcome our local MP, Ross Thomson, to Newton Dee, and to provide him with a tour of our community.
The tour also gave Ross an opportunity to find out first hand about our concerns regarding Brexit, and about our concerns over the ‘hostile environment’ that has adversely affected visa applications over the last year from people from non-EU countries wanting to volunteer at Newton Dee. We warmly welcome Ross’s offer to work with us in support of future visa applications
