Residents and businesses are being encouraged to take part in the UK-wide tree planting initiative named The Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC) which runs through to the end of the Jubilee year in 2022.

Its aim is to create a legacy in honour of The Queen’s leadership of the nation over 70 years which will benefit future generations.

There was recent good news after it was announced the Peterborough received a grant from the Forest Commission to plant 3,300 more trees across the city.

More tree planting is being carried out locally, including recently around the playing fields in Beaumont Way, Hampton Hargate by local councillors Nicolle Moyo, John Howard and Mohammed Farooq.

Cllr Moyo said: “We are delighted to participate in The Queen’s Green Canopy project. Not only do we recognise the benefits of planting more trees for the environment but we are proactively championing green initiatives in our community to help lower carbon emissions.”

The tree planting will support Peterborough’s environmental ambitions, including the target to achieve zero carbon emissions by 2030.
