Last autumn, members of Blunts WI decided to respond to the Queen’s request that as many people as possible should plant a tree to mark her Platinum Jubilee.
In February, some of the members went to a local nursery and chose a beautiful flowering cherry called Royal Flame, which they planted last weekend.
Pictured here is Blunts WI President Kate Bairstow with the Blunts WI Platinum Jubilee Tree in its new home opposite the Chapel Hall where the WI meets each month.
The Queen’s Green Canopy is a unique tree planting initiative created to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022, which invites people and community groups from across the United Kingdom to “Plant a Tree for the Jubilee”. If your WI would like to join in and plant a tree, you can find full details on the Queen’s Green Canopy website.
