Kingston Mayor joins national tree planting tribute to Queen’s Platinum Jubilee
Councillor Sushila Abraham, Mayor of the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames, has joined civic heads across the UK in planting a tree to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
The initiative is spearheaded by the National Association of Civic Officers and contributes to the Queen’s Green Canopy, which is a tree planting scheme to mark the Jubilee.
The Rowan tree has been planted outside the historic Guildhall in Kingston town centre.
On the planting Councillor Sushila Abraham, Mayor of Kingston, said:
“I am honoured to have planted a tree in tribute to Her Majesty The Queen’s 70 year reign. Today, 11 March 2022, marks the seventieth day of the seventieth year of the Queen’s accession to the throne.
“I am encouraging as many people as possible to take part in the fantastic work of the Queen’s Green Canopy and to plant a tree for the Jubilee”

Communities in Kingston are welcome to apply to hold a street party over the Platinum Jubilee Bank Holiday, more information on this is available on the council’s website.
