The Mayor of Richmond upon Thames, Cllr Geoff Acton, planted a new oak tree on Moormead Recreation Ground to mark the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

This year is the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years on the throne. The Queen’s Green Canopy is a unique tree planting initiative created to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee this year which invites everyone from across the United Kingdom to 'Plant a Tree for the Jubilee'.

This morning (11 March), The Mayor was joined by the Leader of Richmond Council, Cllr Gareth Roberts, as well as local residents at Moormead Recreation Ground for the planting of the new oak tree.

New trees have now been planted in every ward of the borough to mark the Platinum Jubilee with all new trees being species that are native to the UK.

The newly planted trees are easily identifiable with special Platinum Jubilee tags.
