“Just to say what a great website!

So many give the message that yes you might like to visit but not now, wait until spring! – but not yours. Well done somebody!”

Dog of the Week!

Buddy, a handsome and very energetic springer spaniel, one of our volunteers, who regularly brings his human, Louise, to FoSCP work parties. Thank you Buddy .
