Trees, teas and crowns help celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

Hannah Coffey, deputy CEO plants at tree at Basildon Hospital

A series of very special tree planting ceremonies have taken place across Mid and South Essex NHS Foundation Trust to help commemorate the Queen’s 70 years on the throne.

A small-leaved lime tree has been planted at each main hospital site in Basildon, Southend and Broomfield.

It’s all part of The Queen’s Green Canopy, which is a unique tree planting initiative to mark this special occasion, which has been asking everyone from individuals and companies to “Plant a Tree for the Jubilee”.

Mid and South Essex Hospitals Charity have funded prizes for crown decorating competitions on the children’s wards, cream teas for staff, as well as bunting for wards.
