QUEEN’S GREEN CANOPY

Saturday March 26: 14.00-16.00

More than 25 families joined us on March 26 to plant 70 new trees near the junction of Main Street and Putney Hill Road as our contribution to the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

The weather was kind to us and many took the opportunity to meet up afterwards at the Village Hall for tea and cakes.

We will try to arrange to meet up next year for some mulching and so that you can see your tree’s progress.
