AN OAK tree has been planted in a Guiseley park in honour of the Queen's forthcoming platinum jubilee.

Members of the Inner Wheel Club of Aireborough gathered in Nunroyd Park to plant the tree, grown from an acorn by a club member.

The tree was planted on November 23 by President Anne Brown as part of the Queen's Green Canopy planting by groups and organisations.

The ground was prepared by the Leeds Parks Department. Present at the ceremony were members of the Inner Wheel Club and Guiseley and Rawdon councillor Graham Latty.

The sapling was grown by Heather and Geoffrey Barton, members of Aireborough Inner Wheel and Rotary Clubs.

The Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC) is a unique initiative created to mark her platinum jubilee in 2022. People from across the United Kingdom are invited to Plant a Tree for the Jubilee.
