DONATION OF TREES FOR QUEEN'S CANOPY CELEBRATION

A note from David Dalzell - for the villagers of Thursford
As part of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations, October 2022 will see a call to the nation to plant a tree as part of the Queen's Canopy.

Number 6, North Lane, Thursford, is offering 30, two-year-old oak saplings that were planted outside in 2020 from acorns gathered under an oak on Walsingham Road. They will be available at the front verge throughout the spring and summer season, and will also be available on the Green during the Jubilee Sunday celebrations.

These are being offered to anyone in the village who would like to plant a tree as part of the Queen's Canopy project.

Once the growing season is done, and the planting season starts from October 2022, they will be ready for planting into their final position. The Queen's Canopy project will begin from Oct 2022.

As part of the celebrations, we invite you to photograph your planting and send images through to kerry_thursfordpc@yahoo.com so that they can be published in a future edition of the Tablet.

Once you pick up your tree sapling, all you need is:

A Spade and gardening fork
A cane or stake to support the tree
with a guard

We hope you'll invest in the village's natural heritage.
