PLANT A TREE FOR THE JUBILEE - Children from Fishburn Primary School, accompanied by Emily Jones (Year 2/3 Teacher), will plant two oak trees, one large and one small, at each end of the village green; the large one going in near the new ceremonial beacon, to mark The Queen's Platinum Jubilee. Parish councillors will attend the special tree planting ceremony on Tuesday 5th April 2022 at 10:00 a.m. The trees have been provided by the Parish Council from a Durham County Council grant of £250.00. 

The Queen has issued a special message of thanks to people across the country who have come together to plant more than a million Jubilee trees in her name. The monarch said she was "deeply touched" and hoped the saplings will "flourish and grow for many years to come" for future generations to enjoy. Her words marked the halfway point of the Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC) initiative, which spans two official tree-planting seasons, and celebrates the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee milestone. Tree planting will commence again in October 2022 until the end of the Jubilee year. The Queen said in her written message: "As the planting season draws to a close, I send my sincere thanks to everyone across the country who has planted a tree to celebrate my Platinum Jubilee. I am deeply touched that so many community groups, schools, families and individuals have made their own unique contributions to the Green Canopy initiative. I hope your Jubilee trees flourish and grow for many years to come, for future generations to enjoy."
