Burn's Supper

burnsThe hall looked beautiful with the tables laid out, candles trimmed with tartan and the walls drapped in tartan fabric.  Everyone filtered in, taking their seats ready for the celebrations to begin.  

The sound of bagpipes coming up the hall was hauntingly atmospheric, and a proud Ewan followed behind carrying the signature 'haggis'.

Martin, master of ceremonies, opened the evening with a Burn's poem delivered in his best thick Scottish accent. We sang songs and feasted on haggis, neeps n tatties washed down with Iron Bru, in true Scottish keeping. (Would Mr Burn's approve!)

Martin

The evening was topped of with an amazing homemade Cranachan and a cheery rendition of Auld Lang Syne, sang hand in hand with our neighbor. It was a pleasure to observe this wonderful tribute to one of Scotland's great poets. If Mr Burn's were alive today, he'd have been a proud man.

Michelmas Celebration

The whole community joined in to celebrate the annual Michelmas day celebrations. It started off with harvesting all the fantastic things that have been grown over the last few months. 

This was followed by a harvest meal altogether in the evening.

New Lanark Conference

This year saw the 7th Bi-annual New Lanark Conference. The theme for the conference was Community Building and Social Renewal, Shaping our World through Self Expression. 20 people from Corbenic attended. This was a great opportunity for some who have been before to reconnect with old friends and also for those who have never been to meet people from other Camphills.

Easter Outing

Easter outing

Every year the whole community goes out together for the annual Easter Monday outing. Normally this would be to the beach. However, this year we decided to go to the park in Crieff.

Even though it was a little bit chilly, it was lovely and dry and everyone could enjoy their picnic and games in this beautiful park.
