Green Canopy tree planting ceremony commemorates The Queen's Platinum Jubilee

Fruit trees were planted at Midmar Primary School to mark Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

The Lord Lieutenant of Aberdeenshire Alexander Manson was a special guest who oversaw the planting of the trees at the Green Canopy ceremony, a series of events marking The Queen’s latest milestone of her reign which began in 1952.

The royal visitor was joined by head teacher Elizabeth Shepherd, teachers, and pupils as the trees were planted on the school grounds.

Mrs Shepherd said: “It was a delight to welcome Her Majesty’s Lord Lieutenant for Aberdeenshire Mr Alexander Manson. The children were really excited about this special event. The trees will not only act as a symbol of Her Majesty The Queen’s enduring reign but also be useful for outdoor learning too.”

There are several Green Canopy tree planting ceremonies taking place across schools in Aberdeenshire to mark The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. The event will be officially commemorated on Saturday, June 4, 2022.
