GREEN CANOPY: Lord-Lieutenant visits Rickmansworth school to encourage tree planting initiative

 Published on: 13th January 2023   |   By: Bryn Holmes   |   Category: Uncategorized

The Lord-Lieutenant of Hertfordshire Robert Voss CBE recently visited Rickmansworth School to support the ongoing Queen’s Green Canopy project.

The initiative, originally set up as part of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations and now continuing in tribute to the late Her Majesty the Queen, aims to plant one million trees across the country in honour of the beloved monarch.

Two wild cherry trees were recently donated to Rickmansworth School as part of the project, and the Lord-Lieutenant came to meet students and see them planted.

Lord-Lieutenant Voss said: “I enjoyed an excellent visit to Rickmansworth School, during which the headteacher gave me a tour of the entire school and I was able to meet and talk to a number of students of all ages.”

Headteacher Matt Fletcher said: “It was an absolute pleasure to welcome His Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant Robert Voss to the school.

“It gave students a real sense of majesty here at the school and we are delighted to be able to plant even more trees as part of Queen’s Green Canopy.”
