Chalvey Community Partnership receives trees from The Queen’s Green Canopy project

On Monday (November 14th, 2022) Pupils from Grove Academy School, alongside Chalvey Community Partnership volunteers, Chalvey Councillors and Slough Borough Council staff, planted 15 trees (5 crab apple 5 Rowan and 5 Hazel) in total as part of the Queen’s Green Canopy project in the school’s grounds in Chalvey.

The Queen’s Green Canopy is an initiative that began in May 2021 in honour of the Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II in 2022. Following the sad passing of her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, his Majesty The King, became the Patron and in accordance with his wishes, the initiative has been extended to the end of March 2023.

Chalvey Community Partnership Chair Mohammed Ahmed, said, “we are proud to be supporting the initiative and thank all the pupils and volunteers for their involvement in the tree planting.”

Natalie Wismayer, the Principle at Grove Academy School said, “We are delighted to be part of The Queen’s Green Canopy project and we are excited to see the trees grow over time. This project and the support from Chalvey Community Partnership has provided an opportunity for students to learn about cultivation and develop some green fingers. Our student parliament have been inspired to utilise more space on the new school grounds for further planting and we look forward to supporting their contributions and the development of our green spaces.”

Councillor Shahida Akbar who helped with the planting, said, “It has been wonderful to witness young people participating in wider tree planting projects, and we thank them for their hard work, along with dedicated volunteers from Chalvey Community Partnership. Our contribution to planting trees in Chalvey along with the Queen’s Green Canopy would not have been possible without them.”

More than one million trees have been planted across the UK as part of The Queen’s Green Canopy project.
