We’re planting a Tree (or two) for the Jubilee! 29 Mar

The Lincolnshire Agricultural Society (LAS) have successfully applied for thirty trees as part of the Queen’s Green Canopy, marking Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee.

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”.

To mark this momentous occasion, the LAS were delighted to welcome twenty five children from nearby Welton St Mary’s Church of England Primary Academy to help plant 30 saplings - ten each of Silver Birch, Rowan and Wild Cherry trees.

The children arrived at the Lincolnshire Showground on Monday 28th March to help plant the trees, with guidance by learners from Riseholme College. The learners planned the design of the trees and supported the planting activity with the children. The children each named their trees on mini plaques to mark the occasion.

Joanna Williams, HR and Finance Administrator at Welton St Mary’s Church of England Primary Academy commented that it was a ‘great opportunity for our children and one they will very much look forward to…they are very excited!’

The LAS are proud to be part of the Queen’s Green Canopy and forging links with the school community and promoting agriculture and the environment is at the heart of the society. Rosie Crust, Education Development Manager at the LAS, shared her thoughts, adding:

“In order for the LAS Education programme to continue to grow with an additional focus on environmental and outdoor learning, plus endorse our charitable objective and support the development of the Lincolnshire Showground, we are developing an environmental area. By joining the Queen’s Green Canopy, we are helping to improve the environmental area and increase biodiversity whilst tackling climate change.

“The theme of the 137th Lincolnshire Show also celebrates Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee, which coincides with the tree planting celebration. The legacy will continue through the generations, and we hope the children will visit again in the future to share their memories of the day.”
