Jubilee Tree planting on Wednesday 22 May – gather from 12.45pm at the cafe on Hilly Fields.
We will be planting the Jubilee Tree donated by the Tree Council at Hilly Fields on Wednesday 22 May.
Students from Prendergast school will come out at 1.15pm for the ceremony. Several people from the Brockley 50+ Club, which meets at Brockley Social Club, will share some memories of the Coronation with us and then they and the students will plant the tree.
This is a prestigious occasion for Brockley as there will be only 60 trees throughout the country to commemorate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. A digital record of all 60 plantings will be presented to the Queen in June. The tree itself will have a smart plaque which will be readable from smartphones. Please do join us — Brockley Society tree officers, Friends of Hilly Fields, Seniors, and Prendergast School students — for this special occasion.
An extra special invite is extended to anyone who has memories of the Coronation.
