Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Print 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. 

West Tamar Council received funding of $13,000 from the Queen`s Platinum Jubilee Tree Planting Program which will run from 2021-2024. The project will plant trees, install a commemorative plaque and hold an event in honour of The Queen’s Jubilee. This will enhance the tree canopy, provide shade and beautify the area.

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. 

It has been a busy day for Bridget Archer MP- Liberal Member for Bass and Mayor Christina Holmdahl unveiling plaques for The Queen's Jubilee Program at recent plantings in Riverside and Beaconsfield. These projects received funding from the Australian Government’s Planting Trees for The Queen’s Jubilee Program. Thank you to Rotary Club of West Tamar Inc for their collaboration in Beaconsfield.
