Queen’s Platinum Jubilee to be marked with tree plantings.

Three extra special trees are being planted in Nuneaton and Bedworth to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

The trio are being planted to commemorate Queen Elizabeth’s 70 years on the throne, with three official ceremonies taking place in the Borough, attended by Nuneaton and Bedworth Mayor Cllr Jeff Clarke.

Cllr Clarke, who will be using a ceremonial spade, will be joined by Cllr Julian Gutteridge, Portfolio Holder for Health and Environment.

Cllr Kris Wilson, leader of Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council, added:

“HM The Queen’s Platinum is a truly historic event, the like of which we will never see again.

“The planting of these trees will commemorate this great occasion and, I hope, last just as long as Her Majesty.”

The ceremonies take place on Tuesday 31 May, starting at 10am at the existing planter outside Nuneaton Town Hall in Coton Road where a wedding cake tree will be planted.

The second one takes place at 10.15am in George Eliot Memorial Gardens in Mill Street Nuneaton and the third at 10.45am in the Miners’ Welfare Park, Bedworth, near the Mayor’s Café, with Pink Hawthorn and Acer Autumn Blaze trees.
