Queen’s Green Canopy
We are pleased to confirm that our Jubilee tree planting on Silloth Green has been added to The Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC) map.
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”.
The Town Council agreed for the circular bed on Silloth Green, opposite Christ Church to be replanted. The bed has been cleared of any old shrubs by our grounds maintenance team and some new compost added to create a new bed to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee. The Friends of Silloth Green volunteers have planted a cherry tree, birch tree and mountain ash tree. Our local Rainbows, Brownies and Guides came across this evening, to plant another 130 smaller hedgerow trees which includes Hawthorn, Wild Privet, Hazel, Cherry Plum, Guelder Rose, Blackthorn, Scotch Rose, Elderflower, Crab apple, Wild Pear and Buckthorn Alder. It was lovely to see the youngsters getting involved and hopefully in the coming years they will be able to watch all the trees they’ve planted grow and thrive.
A very big thank you to everyone involved with this project. It is a welcome addition to the Green and a fitting tribute to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee.
