HARLOW Council has received and planted a special tree as part of the Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC) “Tree of Trees”.
The council joins over 300 organisations from across the UK who were recently announced by the QGC as recipients of these special trees in The Queen’s name, which are gifted in a pot embossed with Her late Majesty’s cypher. These trees stand tall as a message of hope, regeneration and optimism to the nation and the world as part of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations which took place in June.
Presented by Deputy Lieutenant of Essex, Jackie Sully, the tree was planted on Saturday 10 December in the Harlow Museum Walled Gardens. The tree will be carefully looked after by the Musuem’s gardeners and garden volunteers.
Joining the Deputy Lieutenant of Essex at the planting ceremony were Councillor Andrew Johnson, Chair of Harlow Council, Councillor Joel Charles, Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Business and Community Resilience and Harlow Museum staff.
The tree becomes part of the living legacy in honour of Her Majesty, joining over a million trees already planted across the UK as part of The Queen’s Green Canopy.
The QGC is a UK-wide tree planting initiative created to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee. The QGC initiative has been extended to the end of the planting season in March 2023, to give people an opportunity to plant trees to honour Her Majesty.
Nice one 🌳👸👏
