Planting trees for the Queen’s Jubilee

In celebration of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in June, we have joined in the “Plant a Tree for Jubilee” campaign. Working with the Volunteer Elmbridge Tree Wardens, we have planted six fruit trees, creating a mini community orchard at our Mayfield sheltered housing, and have pinned our trees on the Queen’s Green Canopy Map.

The Queens Green Canopy is a tree planting initiative that forms part of the Jubilee celebrations. It honours the Queen’s leadership and encourages people across the United Kingdom to “Plant a Tree for the Jubilee”, creating a legacy to benefit future generations.

Down at our Community Allotment, preparations for the celebrations are also taking shape. Our volunteers and residents from our sheltered housing schemes are creating a huge Union Jack and crown from handmade wool pompoms. They’re also busy painting planters in Jubilee colours and we fully expect the Queen (in scarecrow form) to be in attendance for the celebrations!

If you have ideas to involve our sheltered residents or community allotment volunteers in activities to mark the Jubilee, please get in touch. Email us at
