Read Time:36 Second

The National Farmers’ Union is backing plans for landowners around the UK to make a symbolic gesture to mark teh Platinum Jubilee.

Farmers are being asked to plant a circle of seven trees to mark the 70th anniversary of The Queen’s reign.

It’s hoped that many will do it after lighting celebratory beacons for the Jubilee.

Farming unions across the UK are backing the call from the organisers of the Platinum Pageant for estates to become homes to registered beacons which will be lit on June 2nd 2022 as the Jubilee weekend gets under way.

Organisers want farmers to plant trees after the beacons have been extinguished to symbolise the lasting legacy of The Queen’s record breaking reign.
