Harper Adams University Jubilee Tree takes root in Edgmond

Harper Adams University has partnered up with local communities to plant Jubilee trees in several locations. The trees will contribute to the Queen's Green Canopy and mark Her Majesty's Platinum Jubilee.

 

In Edgmond, an oak tree was planted in Church Field, with Harper Adams Vice-Chancellor Professor Ken Sloan joining Edgmond Council Chairman Cllr Allan Wilson, High Sheriff of Shropshire Tony Morris-Eyton, and St Peters primary pupils Selina and Harry to help place the tree.

The Revd Prebendary Helen Morby and members of the Parish were also present.

Cllr Wilson confirmed that the tree will have a time capsule buried next to it and will be officially dedicated during a series of Jubilee events in June.

He added: “It is a true honour to start the year of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee by the Vice Chancellor Professor Ken Sloan planting this tree, given to the parish by Harper Adams University, especially in the presence of the High Sheriff Tony Morris-Eyton."

"The tree will be set ready for its dedication during the June Bank Holiday along with further celebrations being conducted around the village.”
