Queen Elizabeth II Platinum JubileePrint Page Print this page

The trees were planted, and a commemorative plaque unveiled, in honour of Queen Elizabeth II to commemorate her Platinum Jubilee and acknowledge her 70 years of service as Australia`s Head of State. 

The project received funding of $13,750 from the Queen`s Platinum Jubilee Tree Planting Program which will run from 2021-2024. The project will plant a tree canopy, install a commemorative sign and hold an event in honour of The Queen’s Jubilee. This will enhance the habitat of native fauna and increase community participation.

Elizabeth II (21 April 1926 – 8 September 2022) was Queen of the United Kingdom and other Commonwealth realms from 6 February 1952 until her death in 2022. She was queen regnant of 32 sovereign states during her lifetime, and was head of state of 15 realms at the time of her death. Her reign of 70 years and 214 days was the longest of any British monarch and the longest verified reign of any female monarch in history. 

Bridget Archer MP, our Australian Government representative has been invited to be present at our Commemorative tree planting event which will take place at 3.30pm on Monday, 5 December 2022. The plan for the day will include a number of speakers, the planting of the final 2 trees outside the front fence and this will be followed by afternoon tea in the club house.

More than 100 trees will be planted at the Bridport Golf Club as part of the Queen's Jubilee Tree Planting program. 
Students from Bridport Primary School have pitched in to help and their assistance with planting a flowering gum today was much appreciated.
