Holmes Chapel Parish Council were delighted to take part in the ‘The Queen’s Green Canopy’ by planting a tree in the Sutton Oaks, a central part of the village of Holmes Chapel. A plaque marking the occasion was installed at the same time.
The Parish Council were delighted to be joined for this ceremonial occasion by representatives from the three local schools, community groups and churches, and our Ward Member Cllr Les Gilbert, who all helped to plant this special tree.
The Chairman of the Parish Council, Cllr Chris Jackson opened the ceremony by saying; “We are pleased to be taking part in creating the Queen’s Green Canopy. On behalf of Holmes Chapel, we wish Her Majesty good health and look forward to the celebrations in June on the anniversary of her coronation.”
We hope this tree will flourish and be a long-lasting testimony to the dedication and commitment of Her Majesty the Queen in serving this country for the past 70 years.
