Willie Rennie MSP, the Leader of the Scottish Liberal Democrats, visited Corbenic on 8 February 2019.
Mr Rennie was given a tour of Corbenic, and met a group of co-workers likely to be affected by Brexit. He heard first hand the co-workers’ concerns about the potential impact of Brexit upon Corbenic and upon the other Camphill communities in Scotland.
Mr Rennie spent time meeting and discussing Brexit with members of the Corbenic community while the rain came horizontally against the window. As the time came to join Corbenic’s two Garden groups, and some members of the farm team to plant a tree, the skies cleared and the sun came out. Mr Rennie spent time engaging with the teams and planted a beautiful Dawn Redwood (Metasequoia glyptostroboides) native of South West China. Immediately after the tree planting the rain came in horizontally again and Mr Rennie retreated to the Corbenic Café to meet other members of the community and enjoy some lunch.
Following the visit Mr Rennie has agreed to put forward another motion in Parliament, again recognising the positive service Corbenic provides to many people, and the contribution that Camphill makes to social care in Scotland.
