Former Archbishop of Canterbury, Lord George Carey and his wife Lady Eileen paid a visit to Canniesburn Care in Bearsden recently to visit family friend Robert Young.

Robert was a friend with well known and much loved local man Moir Garrett, who was a cousin of Lady Carey.

Care Home manager James Webb said: “We were very privileged that the two of them took the time to come into the home and were happy to not just spend time with Robert, but made time for all the residents.”

Lord Carey was Archbishop of Canterbury from March 27 1991 (enthroned on April 19) and retired from the office on October 31 2002.

He was created a life peer as Baron Carey of Clifton, in the City and County of Bristol on November 1 2002.

As Archbishop Carey promoted a “decade of evangelism”. But he aroused strong opposition also, some of it quite personal.

Carey is currently the Chancellor of the University of Gloucestershire and the London School of Theology. He is also an Honorary Liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Scriveners and a Distinguished Fellow of the Library of Congress (Washington DC).
