The Mayor of Oswestry, Councillor Mark Jones planted a tree at Brogyntyn Park today to mark National Tree Planting Day .

This is an initiative to encourage civic leaders and communities to, on the same day, plant a tree to mark The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.  Friday 11th March is the seventieth day of the year in which The Queen marks the seventieth anniversary of her accession.

The Queen’s Green Canopy is an inclusive national initiative, meaning that everyone from across the United Kingdom can get involved. The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, the   website will provide the information you need to plan and deliver your project.

The Mayor said “I am proud, honoured and humbled to be planting this tree recognising the service the Queen has given this country and the leadership that she has shown. She is a role model and admired worldwide. I look forward to this year’s celebrations”
