Weston College Asked to Take Part in Somerset’s Special Tree Planting Ceremony to Celebrate the Coronation of King Charles III
Weston College was yet again celebrated for its sustainability work, being asked this week to participate in a very special tree planting ceremony to commemorate the coronation of King Charles III.
The planting of the red oak tree donated to Somerset by Buckingham Palace, took place on the King’s 75th Birthday (14th November) being planted in the Sensory Garden at Vivary Park by the Lord-Lieutenant of Somerset, Mohammed Saddiq, assisted by the Chair of Somerset Council, Councillor Mike Best, and Somerset’s three recipients of the “Tree of Trees” of which Weston College was one (in addition to Bishop Fox’s School in Taunton and The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme in Somerset).
The College was gifted its special tree, (which formed part of the ‘Tree of Trees’ giant sculpture outside Buckingham Palace, to celebrate Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022), for its collaborative tree planting work for the Queen’s Green Canopy project, and work to engage students, staff, and the community in this impressive UK wide green initiative.
Somerset’s Lord-Lieutenant, Mohammed Saddiq, said:
‘Today has been a very special occasion indeed and a lasting memorial to an important moment in our history,’ with Jacqui Ford the College’s Interim Principal adding:
‘We were thrilled to receive a legacy tree from the iconic Buckingham Palace sculpture, for our work to cascade the important biodiversity message behind the Queen’s Green Canopy project - and for our students and staff to be asked to assist in such a special tree planting this week in Vivary Park, to celebrate the coronation of King Charles III has been a real honour.
