New trees to be planted at Highcliffe Castle for Queen's platinum jubilee
SEVEN new trees are to be planted in the grounds of Highcliffe Castle to celebrate the Queen’s platinum jubilee – one for each decade of her reign.
Highcliffe and Walkford Parish Council is to ask for public donations towards the scheme after several residents said they would like to contribute.
Those who help to fund the planting will have their names inscribed on a memorial seat with the trees.
Parish council chair Cllr Bob Hutchings said: “The platinum jubilee is a unique historical event and the opportunity to celebrate it in different ways is something we can all appreciate.
"It would be good to see that seat in years to come covered with the names of subscribers.”
