Commonwealth Tree Planting

23rd November 2018
Local Councillor Susan Dungworth visited us this week to help a group of Seaton Sluice First School children to plant a sapling in front of the school as part of an exciting initiative championed by HM Queen Elizabeth II.
The Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy tree scheme is a unique network of forest conservation initiatives, involving all 53 countries of the Commonwealth. The initiative hopes to promote the growing of trees native to the different countries of the commonwealth and no fewer than 50,000 trees are being planted in the UK as part of the effort to raise awareness of the importance of trees and forests.
