Trees planted in honour of Queen
Pupils and staff from Bramley Hill School were recently invited to attend a community event to plant a tree to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
Organised by a local resident, Patricia, who is also part of Tadworth & Walton Tree Wardens, the Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC) is an initiative that began in honour of the Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. It was introduced to increase and protect the native tree cover as a special gift for the Queen and to mark her 70 years on the throne. The initiative has now been extended to the end of March 2023 to allow people to plant trees in memoriam to honour Her Majesty.
On the day, parents, carers and people from the local community supported the event as pupils rolled up their sleeves to help plant the tree. Nearby, a plaque was placed to commemorate the occasion.
Regional Director Gabrielle O’Meara commented:
"We are honoured to take part in this historic community event with the planting of a tree to mark the Platinum Jubilee. We are delighted that Bramley Hill School is able to participate in this way to commemorate the reign of the late Queen."
