The Queen’s Green Canopy
Residents of Beaminster are reminded that should they wish to do so, flowers in honour of Her Majesty The Queen can be placed in the grounds of St Marys Church. It is asked that any plastic or non-compostable items be removed beforehand.
At the conclusion of the national state of mourning Beaminster Town Council will be collecting the flowers and composting them.
Following the death of Her Majesty The Queen, it is the wishes of its Patron, His Majesty The King, That the Queen’s Green Canopy initiative be extended to the end of March 2023 to give people the opportunity to plant trees in memoriam to honour Her Majesty.
As a nationwide initiative created to mark the Platinum Jubilee, the QGC was due to conclude at the end of the Jubilee year in December.
As the official tree planting season in the UK is from October to March, the initiative will now be extended to include the full tree planting season, beginning in October, and ending in March 2023.
Beaminster Town Council will mark the legacy of Her Majesty the Queen by planting a tree with the compost from her flowers in thanks and celebration of her life and service to the nation.
