Midhurst Town Council organised a celebratory tree planting, to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. The eight trees have been planted as part of the Queen’s Green Canopy at Carron Lane Recreational Ground. A variety of trees have been planted with seasonal interest and colour considered. The trees were generously donated by MADhurst Music Arts & Drama Festival, Midhurst & Easebourne FC, Methodist Church and Mischief Makers, Rother Valley District Guides, Rotary Club of Midhurst & Petworth, Midhurst Lions and Heyshott Cobden Hall Charity and Midhurst Town Council.

Each tree has been fitted with a plaque specifying the tree type and the groups that have funded them.
Carol Lintott said ‘the planting of these trees is greatly appreciated and the residents of Midhurst and its many visitors can all look forward to watching this wonderful curve of trees grow and mature over the coming years’.
