   Tree planting in Musgrave Way for Her Majesty the Queen's Platinum Jubilee    13 March, 2022

Anna Bradnam, who is the County Councillor for Fen Ditton and also Chair of South Cambridgeshire District Council, recently planted a plum tree (Prunus domestica) on green space owned by the District Council in Musgrave Way in honour of Her Majesty the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. This was part of a major initiative for The Queen's Green Canopy project, and a plaque will be installed soon to mark the occasion.

Cllr Bradnam said, “The Council had already planted some fruit trees for the residents of Musgrave Way to enjoy, so it was a real pleasure to add this plum tree to the little orchard we have created. My Dad grew fruit trees in our council house garden when I was younger and I remember the pleasure of eating a sweet, juicy plum straight from the tree. Mum used to bottle fruit too, so we had gorgeous fruit right through the winter. Her Majesty the Queen wanted us to be inspired to plant trees in our communities, so I'm sure the residents will water and care for the trees and enjoy their produce for decades to come.”

The District Council thanks S P Landscapes & Tree Contractors Ltd for supplying the plum tree.
