It’s Christmas Party Time, starts at 7pm.
I am pleased to report that our December Meeting (party) will also feature a brief presentation by Thomas Courtauld DL (Deputy Lieutenant for Norfolk) on 'The Queens Green Canopy'.
The precis of the QGC is : The Queen’s Green Canopy is an initiative to celebrate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee by encouraging people to plant and protect trees as a legacy to Her Majesty’s Service to the Nation. The QGC will invite the four Nations of the United Kingdom to “Plant a Tree for the Jubilee” and will encourage people to plant well with healthy trees that will not only survive but thrive for generations to come. Everyone from community groups, schools, scout groups, corporates, counties, councils and parishes are encouraged to plant trees – from saplings to majestic avenues of significant trees – to mark this extraordinary occasion. As well as inviting people to plant new trees, existing woodland will also be dedicated to QGC by erecting commemorative plaques to mark the occasion and preserve forests for the future, in The Queen’s name. The QGC was launched in May. There is an excellent website at www.queensgreencanopy.org which explains it all and how your trees can be recorded.
