Development progress on the new houses
Our four new workshops are making a real difference in the day to day life and work of everyone at Camphill Blair Drummond. No longer just buildings, they have been transformed and brought to life not only by the equipment and technology we have been able to install, but also by the students, staff and volunteers who make use of them every day. The atmosphere is terrific and, as you can see from our lead story, we are already seeing the new workshops acting as a real catalyst in realising the potential of all involved in our community.
We are also making real progress towards the next key stage; increasing and improving our living accommodation. The first two houses, Gardens houses, are really taking shape. We no longer have to rely on the Artist’s impression; we can see for ourselves the exciting prospect of our first purpose-built residential houses.As you will see from the photograph, the roof is now on and the external work is nearing completion. We can now start planning the interior finishings and furnishings. Our residents are very much looking forward to their involvement in this stage. They will be able to put the final personal touches into what will be their new home.
All going to plan, the Gardens houses should be open for use in the summer. Our next project is the planned re-development of our Gardens workshop, followed by the construction of a further two residential houses, starting in the autumn. Once the Parklands houses are complete we will have achieved many of the key outcomes of our Development; a real celebration for everyone involved.
There are no upcoming events at this time.

- “When I bring David back to Blair Drummond after a couple of days at home, he gets a wonderful welcome from the others in his house. Leanne comes up with a big smile on her face and gives him a hug. Once, he was a little unhappy about me leaving and she jumped on to the sofa next to him, bouncing up and down, making him laugh” – Parent
