Burnham-on-Sea & Highbridge Town Council

Collection of floral tributes

Collection of floral tributes

Residents of both Highbridge and Burnham on Sea left floral tributes at the flagpoles in both our towns as a mark of respect at the sad passing of our Queen, Elizabeth II. The Town Council also left floral wreaths. All of the flowers have now been collected by the Mayor, cllr Lesley Millard and will be composted. The compost will then be used at a planting of a tree in her memory in the future, which will become part of the “Queen’s Green Canopy “.

Across the nation over a million trees were planted during the first planting season from October 2021 to March 2022 in Her Majesty’s name, creating a living legacy. The Queen’s Green Canopy was initially created to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and was due to conclude in December of this year, the end of the Jubilee year. On the wishes of his Majesty the King, this initiative has now been extended for a further full tree planting season – from October 2022 until March 2023. This will give people the opportunity to plant trees in honour of the memory of Her Majesty.

The Queen’s Green Canopy will serve as a lasting tribute to Her Majesty’s service to both her people and her country.

If you would like to gift a tree to honour Her Majesty, in memory of a loved one, or as a gift you can do so online here at: https://shop.queensgreencanopy.org/
