East Farndon Queen’s Green Canopy Tree Planting

On Remembrance Sunday, November 13th 2022, East Farndon completed it’s Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations with the planting of a tree on Marriott Green.

Villagers gathered together to attend the ceremony, part of the Queen’s Green Canopy initiative. East Farndon decided to plant the tree to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee year and also to pay tribute to Her Majesty the Queen following her sad passing in September.

Many thanks to Richard Everard OBE DL, who planted the tree on behalf of the village.

Also many thanks to Judy Hodgetts, Jess Oakden, the Jubilee Committee, the Parish Council and the Marriott Green team for their support in making this happen.

Judy and Jess, our resdent tree wardens, chose an english native tree, a crab apple (malus) called Comtesse de Paris with white blossom and yellow fruit.

On the sad passing of the Queen, a number of residents placed flowers under the Beech Tree near Marriott Green. These were collected and composted so that they could be included with the soil used to plant our Jubilee tree.
