To celebrate Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee, Chief Constable Chris Rowley planted a commemorative tree at Lancashire Police Headquarters.
By planting the tree, the Constabulary participated in the Queen’s Green Canopy initiative, a unique tree planting scheme which has invited people in the UK plant a tree for the Jubilee.
At the planting ceremony attended by Officers and Staff, Mr Rowley planted a flowering cherry tree to honour 70 years of Her Majesty’s reign.
Chief Constable Chris Rowley said:
“In taking part in the Queen’s Green Canopy, we are not only marking her long and glorious reign but also celebrating her lifelong commitment and dedication to public service.
“Therefore, as a Crown Servant, whose duty alongside all Police Officers, is to uphold the Queen’s Peace, I wanted to ensure that my Force celebrated this significant occasion and by planting the tree to leave a lasting memento of the occasion at our Headquarters base.”
