Mayor delivers trees to schools ahead of King’s Coronation
The Mayor of Weymouth, Cllr Ann Weaving, is honouring the Coronation of His Majesty King Charles III by donating 11 English native trees to schools in Weymouth during 2023.
The Crab Apple trees were supplied with a rabbit guard, stake and watering system by the Mayor, along with Parks and Open Spaces Manager, Tara Williams and Senior Arborist, David Parry from Weymouth Town Council. The schools will also receive a plaque to recognise the progress of the tree in six months’ time.
The schools that received a tree include:
- Bincombe Valley
- Westfield Arts College
- St Andrews
- St Johns
- Wey Valley
- St Augustine’s
- Holy Trinity
- Wyke Regis Infant & Juniors (Received two trees)
Mayor, Cllr Ann Weaving said, “I was delighted to present the Crab Apple trees which have been planted ahead of the King’s Coronation. What a wonderful idea!
“These trees will grow with the children, and future generations to come, so I was delighted to be involved in this project which Weymouth Town Council organised.”
Sean Kretz from Westfield Arts College added: “This is a lovely way to mark this moment in history and something that pupils, staff and our school community can enjoy for many years to come.”
