St Allen Parish
Council plants Landmark tree to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
St Allen Parish Council have planted an oak tree at St Allen
Church to celebrate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. The tree which was
grown and donated by the Forest for Cornwall project was planted by Alfie, one
of the youngest members of the community. Alfie was helped by Kate
Holborow, one of the Queen’s deputy lieutenants for Cornwall, local MP Cherilyn Mackrory and Jonathan
McCulloch, the Chairman of the Parish Council. Many members of the local
community gathered to watch the event.
will become part of the Queen’s Green Canopy project, which encourages
communities and individuals to plant a tree for the jubilee.
Parsons, the vicar of St Allen, blessed the tree and wished it a long and
McCulloch, the Chairman of the Parish Council, thanked the Church for allowing
the tree to be planted in the Churchyard, and said “In time this sapling will
become a piece of history, a link to the reign of Queen Elizabeth II. The
oak may well live for over 500 years and when mature could host over 2000
species. I am delighted that once again St Allen Parish Council is
planting trees, and look forward to planting many more in the coming years.”
