Noting that the tree planting was the organisations first step in their green journey towards becoming carbon neutral, CEO Sharon Commins stated:‘It is fitting to have a tree planting ceremony in the heart of our community to mark a quarter of a century. A tree gives us a link between the past, present and future. 

Like a tree, anchored in our communities, we are a small organisation with big ambitions and an even bigger heart. This will be the first in a number of tree plantings that we will be doing in partnership with DLR County Council, and with assistance from our local youth group’

An Cathaoirleach, Lettie McCarthy underscored the importance of trees and nature in general during the lockdown, noting that observing nature’s beauty has helped many people pull through the difficult days. She and Chairman Alan Wyley paid tribute to the commitment of the organisation in supporting communities in Dun Laoghaire Rathdown for 25 years, and in particular the dynamism and dedication of staff during the pandemic in identifying vital community supports and adapting services.
