Pupils from Grayshott CE Primary School plant a tree for the Queen’s Green Canopy at GreenAcres Heatherley Wood
March 16, 2022
GreenAcres Heatherley Wood invite pupils from Grayshott CE Primary School to join them to “Plant a tree for the Jubilee” at their award-winning cemetery and ceremonial park in Bordon, Hampshire.
GreenAcres Heatherley Wood are taking part in The Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC). This unique tree planting initiative marks Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022 and invites people from across the United Kingdom to “Plant a Tree for the Jubilee”.
The Park Team are proud to be part of creating a legacy in honour of Her Majesty The Queen’s leadership of the Nation, which will benefit future generations. They provide a unique cemetery and ceremonial park serving the members of all faiths and communities creating a special place that is both tranquil and uplifting at a time of great sadness.
Park Manager Jeni Putland said: “I’m delighted that this project has helped connect us with our local community in such a positive way. It was really special to be joined by the House Captains from Grayshott CE Primary. They loved getting involved and being part of the legacy of the QGC. We hope they will visit in the future to see how it has grown.
We have also been very lucky to be supported by Glenn Myers from Grayshott Pottery who made a magnificent pottery plaque to commemorate the children planting the tree.”
Craig Rogers-Jones, Grounds Manager at GreenAcres Heatherley Wood shared his thoughts on the occasion: ”We had fabulous weather and it was good to see the kids engaged in enhancing their local environment. We carefully considered the surrounding native woodland and chose to plant a Lime tree.
Being part of QGC allows us to highlight the significant value of trees and woodlands as nature’s simple but highly effective way to clean the air we breathe, slow the impact of climate change, create important wildlife habitats and improve our general health and wellbeing.”
The GreenAcres Group recently conducted a survey of over 2000 UK residents, asking people about environmental consciousness in relation to funerals. 53% of the responders stated that it was important to them, showing that there is shift in our awareness of the impact on the planet when planning a memorial of a loved one.
The new area celebrating the Queen’s Green Canopy is accessible for anyone to visit during the park opening hours which can be found on their website – https://www.greenacresgroup.co.uk/heatherleywood-park-contact/
