Tree Planted at Special Ceremony to Mark Platinum Jubilee

A ceremonial tree has been planted at the entrance of New Street Park, Daventry on Friday 11 March 2022, as part of a special initiative commemorating The Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

Daventry Town Council, Chief Officer, Deborah Jewell and Daventry Mayor, Councillor Karen Tweedale, with the help of colleagues at Norse, planted a special Sea Buckthorn tree, as part of Her Majesty The Queen's Green Canopy (QGC).

The tree planting initiative has been created to mark Her Majesty's Platinum Jubilee, and invites people from across the United Kingdom to 'Plant a Tree for the Jubilee'.

National Association of Civic Officers (NACO) invited Civic Leaders across the country to plant a tree on 11 March 2022 to mark this very special occasion. The date was chosen for this event as it is the 70th day of the year in which The Queen marks the 70th anniversary of her accession.

Cllr Tweedale said: "This is a really unique initiative and I was delighted to plant this special tree. The Platinum Jubilee is a hugely significant occasion and it is really exciting that so many trees are being planted across the district, and the UK, which is also great for wildlife and the environment."
