The Queen's Platinum Jubilee tree planting

15 March 2022

In celebration of Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, The National Association of Civic Officers organised a tree planting across the country for civic leaders and mayors on Friday 11 March.

The Lord Mayor of Chester, Councillor Martyn Delaney and the Chairman of Cheshire West and Chester Council, Councillor Bob Rudd joined pupils from St Martin’s Academy to plant two trees in Alexandra Park, Hoole. 

The Lord Mayor of Chester said: 

“Planting these trees will create a legacy in honour of The Queen’s leadership of the nation. The jubilee focuses on sustainably, which is extremely important, with our trees benefiting future generations.”

The Chairman of Cheshire West and Chester Council said:

“Alexandra Park in Chester is a well-used and much-loved park, and it was wonderful to be able to plant our trees in such a special place.  Trees symbolise strength, fruitfulness, and peace and I hope that our two trees will grow tall and strong, and they will be a sign of strength and peace for future generations.” 

Celebrations will take place across the borough from 2 June, for details visit:
