Staffordshire MPs plant trees for the Jubilee
Sir Bill Cash MP was delighted to plant a tree to mark the Queen’s upcoming Platinum Jubilee. Sir Bill was pleased to join with other Staffordshire MPs in this initiative. This means that all twelve Staffordshire constituencies will have a tree planted by their MP in honour of the Queen.
Sir Bill planted the tree in St Michael’s and St Wulfad’s Churchyard, Stone. Sir Bill was also joined by his wife, Lady Cash; Rev Michael Harding of St Michael’s and St Wulfad’s Church; Alan James, Chairman of the Stone Conservatives Association; Roger Barnard, President of the Stone Conservatives Association; and Nichola and Dennis Abbott.
The trees will form part of The Queen’s Green Canopy which is a unique initiative to increase the number of trees and woodland throughout the UK.
Sir Bill said, “I am delighted to plant a tree in St Michael’s and St Wulfad’s Churchyard to mark the Queen’s historic Platinum Jubilee. This tree, along with those also planted by my fellow Staffordshire MP colleagues, will form part of The Queen’s Green Canopy to celebrate the Jubilee.”
