Our latest tree planting has been given the royal seal of approval, we have been given the honour of being  being awarded The Queen’s Green Canopy commemorative plaque as part of Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee. The Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC) is a unique tree planting initiative created to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022 which invites people from across the United Kingdom to “Plant a Tree for the Jubilee”. Everyone from individuals to Scout and Girlguiding groups, villages, cities, counties, schools and corporates have been encouraged to play their part to enhance our environment by planting trees during the official planting season between October to March.

Our Queen’s College planting initiative, launched by Mr Mann, is part of our overall efforts to increase tree coverage and give all pupils the opportunity of hands-on experience in planting and caring for trees while learning about the importance of growing all sorts of plants at Queen’s in helping tackle climate change.

Mr Mann said, “We are absolutely delighted to have received a commemorative plaque as part of Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations. We have planted over 420 indigenous fruit trees, courtesy of the Woodland Trust, making Queen’s an even greener and cleaner place to be”.
