Trees planted at both our hospitals to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee

After a bank holiday  weekend of celebrations across our hospitals to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, a lasting reminder of this momentous occasion is now in place.

On Wednesday 8 June, a tree was planted at each of our hospitals by our Chief Nurse Kathryn Halford and Ron Wright, one of our patient partners. These are part of the Queen’s Green Canopy, which encourages everyone to ‘plant a tree for the Jubilee’. Pictured above is Ron and Kathryn planting the tree at Queen's Hospital.

With their special commemorative plaques the trees will allow us, and future generations, to look back on this time.

Kathryn said: “It was a pleasure to be asked to help plant these trees.

“With help from our partners and staff we ensured everyone working over the Platinum Jubilee weekend, and our patients, were able to get into the festive spirit. It’s lovely to have a permanent reminder of this special time.”
