Dedication of The Queen’s Green Canopy Tree

Yesterday we dedicated a tree in our churchyard as part of the Queen’s Green Canopy, straight after our Jubilee Celebration service. 
Planting a tree is about investing in the future far beyond our own life span. Martin Luther, the German reformer said: “Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree today.”
Our new tree is not an apple tree but a Prunus Sargentii, and it promises to look beautiful through the different seasons.
