Lakeside Village Plants a Royal Legacy for Generations To Come

A special tree has been planted at Lakeside Village Outlet Shopping Centre as part of a national campaign to mark the Platinum Jubilee and the legacy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

The white birch tree at the centre is one of an estimated million trees set to be planted across the UK as part of The Queen’s Green Canopy initiative.

The scheme was created to mark the Platinum Jubilee and, following the sad passing of Her Majesty, extended until March 2023 to give individuals, community groups, schools and businesses the chance to plant trees in her memory.

Lyndsey Parry, Deputy Centre Manager at Lakeside Village, said: “The Queen’s Green Canopy initiative is a heart-warming movement that will not only represent the legacy of Her Majesty for years and generations to come, but also give back to the environment and help make the UK a greener place.

“We are proud to have taken part in the scheme and to have planted our very own tree here at Lakeside Village, as part of our ongoing environmental programme.”

The tree can be found alongside the walkway that runs adjacent to the centre side of the Lakeside Village car park. For further information about The Queen’s Green Canopy campaign, visit
