Children Play Their Part for the Platinum Jubilee

Children across the Borough have played a part in the Queen’s Green Canopy Project to celebrate Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Muckamore Pre School and Abbotts Cross Primary School along with Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey, Councillor Billy Webb marked Her Majesty’s momentous milestone by ‘planting trees for the Jubilee.’ 

Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey, Councillor Billy Webb said,

“Planting a tree for the Jubilee is a wonderful way for our young people to remember the Queen’s 70th year on the throne. It’s a step closer towards our pledge of planting one million trees across the Borough.”

The Platinum School Tree Initiative is part of a series of the Council projects under the Queen’s Green Canopy Project. Our local children have joined an allegiance with other schools and community groups across the U.K. as part of this tree planting initiative. Earlier this month, the Council lit up Council buildings purple and have planned further fun community activities for the Jubilee weekend, running from 2-5 June.
