Hundreds of trees will be planted over the next year in different parts of the borough as part of celebrations to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee.

The Mayor of Boston, Cllr Frank Pickett was honoured to be invited to the first of many tree planting events by the Portfolio Holder for Parks and Open Spaces, Cllr Tracey Abbott. The Mayor planted the first of ten fruit trees at the New Jubilee Community Orchard at Garfit’s Lane Park in Boston the remainder of the trees were then planted by members of the Arranging Community Events (ACE) Group.

The trees were provided by the council and the event was organised by the ACE group. This is the first of many events organised by this group which will then lead to the main Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Event in Boston Market Place on Sunday 5th June 2022.

A representative of the ACE group, said: “We are really pleased to be working with the council on this and we are looking forward to working with them further over the next 12 months planting more trees in the borough to mark this historic milestone.”

Supported by the council this is also a key part of one of the council’s priorities to reverse the impact on climate change, and aims to help the local authority achieve a position of net zero carbon by 2040.
