27 Jan QGC Tree Planting at Renshaw’s Field, Clive
Deputy-Lieutenant Robert Bland joined 5 local charities and community groups in the village of Clive who had come together to plant trees on community land run by Renshaw’s Field Association under the QGC scheme.
Fortified with plenty of warm drinks and home made cakes Renshaw’s Field Association, Clive Church of England School, All Saints Church, Clive & Grinshill WI, and Clive Village Hall braved the elements and planted 12 hazel trees, 5 cherry trees, 10 rowan trees.
The Queen’s Green Canopy is a nationwide initiative created to mark the Platinum Jubilee, and was due to conclude in December – the end of the Jubilee year. However, as the official tree planting season in the United Kingdom is from October to March, the initiative will now be extended to include the full tree planting season, beginning in October 2022 and concluding in March 2023.
The Queen’s Green Canopy is proud to be creating a living legacy with over a million trees planted in Her Majesty’s name across the nation during the first planting season, October 2021 to March 2022. The extension of the QGC initiative will build on this legacy and serve as a lasting tribute to Her Majesty’s extraordinary service to her country and her people.
The interactive map created by The Queen’s Green Canopy to showcase the planting projects across the United Kingdom will also continue to the end of March 2023, giving people an opportunity to be part of this special legacy.
