Ashington pupils plant Oak tree as part of planting project

We are delighted to share that Ashington Parish Council have planted an Oak tree as part of the Queen’s Green Canopy, assisted by pupils from Ashington CE School.

The tree planted by the Ashington pupils can be found on the Queen’s Green Canopy interactive map which showcases the planting projects across the United Kingdom.

The Council provided funds and resources to enable trees to be planted across the Horsham District by Parish and Neighbourhood Councils, in a project organised by its Parks and Countryside team.

The Queen’s Green Canopy is a national tree planting initiative which invited people to “Plant a tree for the Jubilee” as part of Her Late Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee commemorations. The project creates a living legacy with over a million trees planted. The initiative serves as a lasting tribute to Her Late Majesty.

The project is continuing into March to make the most of the best season for tree planting.
