Queen's Green Canopy - tree planting event

You are invited to a community tree planting event to mark the Queen's Platinum Jubilee and contribute to her Green Canopy initiative: 

Location: Open Space next to the Xcel leisure complex, Waterside Drive, Walton-on-Thames KT12 2JG
Date: Sunday 21 November 
Time: Drop in 
from 10.30am to 1pm
No booking. Just turn up. Please bring spades (there will only be a limited number available) and wear suitable footwear (it will be muddy). 

This planting event is part of our commitment to deliver our Carbon Management and Reduction Action Plan. It will also  contribute to Surrey County Council's pledge to plant 1.2million trees in Surrey as part of their Tree strategy. The saplings have been funded by the Forestry Commission. 

The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Celebrations

We are starting to make plans for community events to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee in 2022. To mark Her Majesty The Queen's 70 years on the throne, we can all look forward to a special four day bank holiday weekend from Thursday 2 June to Sunday 5 June 2022.

If you are a local organisation or group that would like to put on a community event or have a specific project in mind to mark this milestone, we would love to hear from you. This includes any planting projects that would contribute to the Queen’s Green Canopy initiative.

We will be happy to help spread the word about your project/event. Please email leisure@elmbridge.gov.uk to share your plans with us.
