Tree Planting

The trees have now all been planted at the Community Centre, thanks to a very dedicated band of Deerness folk and friends who braved wind, rain and sleet over the last few weeks.

We hope you will come past and admire all their hard work, and watch as the saplings flouish to become a mature wood in years to come!

Thank you to all who have been involved!

Merry Christmas!


Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas, and hope 2015 is a peaceful and prosperous one for you all!

Thank you to everyone who has helped out over the year with our many FOSN events and fund-raising activities - we couldn't manage without you!
