Residents of a care home in Marlow have planted a tree to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
Churchill Retirement Living development staff were joined by Deputy Mayor Cllr Jocelyn Towns, along with friends and local residents, to plant a young Brid Cherry tree in the house’s communal gardens.
The event was part of ‘The Queen’s Green Canopy’ initiative, created to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022.

With a focus on sustainable planting, the initiative encourages the planting of trees to create a legacy in honor of the Queen’s leadership of the nation, which will benefit future generations.

Nancy Rutherford, Regional Sales and Marketing Manager for Churchill Retirement Living, said: “It was wonderful to welcome everyone to this special event to kick off this year’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations at Peel Lodge, and we would like to say a big thank you to the deputy mayor for his participation.
“Many other events will soon take place at the Lodge to mark the Queen’s Jubilee Year, and everyone is invited to come and enjoy a patriotic celebration and experience the lifestyle, friendship and meaning of the community offered here.”
Churchill will plant more than 40 trees at its retirement housing estates across the country this spring as part of the initiative.
