Panoramic Helps The Women’s Fellowship in Fairlight
One of the members of The Women’s Fellowship at St Peter’s Church in Fairlight thought it would be good to take part in the Queen’s request for everyone to plant a tree to mark her platinum jubilee. Whilst they contacted us to ask what tree would be most suitable, we went on to supply and plant the tree for free.
The Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC) is a tree planting initiative created to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee which invites people from across the United Kingdom to “Plant a Tree for the Jubilee”.
Everyone from individuals to groups, villages, towns, cities, counties, churches, schools and corporates are being encouraged to play their part to enhance the environment by planting trees. Planting will run through to the end of the Jubilee year.
St Peter’s Church is located to the west of our office in Hastings within the United Parish of Pett, Guestling and Fairlight. The church was first opened in a converted military hut in 1947. In 1968 this was found to be in an advanced state of decay and a replacement was consecrated in 1970.
We reviewed the planned location and we suggested Prunus Subhirtella autumnalis, a winter flowering cherry tree. The tree is planted in a prominent place where it can be seen by passers-by in the village. They sent photos along with a nice letter of thanks.
