Ann-Marie Kedzior, headteacher at Alderman Richard Hallam Main College, stated: “It’s an honour for our college to be chosen to obtain the tree as a part of the Jubilee celebrations – and a good way to commemorate this important anniversary for HM The Queen.”
Leicester’s Lord Mayor Cllr Deepak Bajaj stated: “We’re vastly honoured to play a particular half within the Jubilee celebrations and to share this event with our younger folks in Leicester.
“This tree shall be a long-lasting legacy, recognising Her Majesty The Queen’s devoted service to this nation over the past 70 years.”
The town council will even be participating within the Queen’s Inexperienced Cover venture, planting timber to commemorate the Platinum Jubilee throughout the present planting season. Extra particulars shall be introduced quickly.
