Villagers branch out in Kessingland for Diamond Jubilee
RESIDENTS of Kessingland were in a right royal mood at the weekend as they planted 105 trees to help celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
On Saturday youngsters from the village's primary school and the Hang Out youth centre joined forces with parish councillors to plant the trees around the Marram Green play area, the council's nature reserve at Marsh Lane and Heritage Green.
The trees, comprising silver birch, birch, blackthorn, hazel, hawthorn, rowan and oak, were supplied by the Woodlands Trust to celebrate the Jubilee.
A Royal Oak sapling is being cared for until the weekend of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations in Kessingland when it will be planted at an open space in the High Street.
