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. 

Strathfieldsaye and Districts Community Enterprise Limited received funding of $17,500 from the Queen`s Platinum Jubilee Tree Planting Program which will run from 2021-2024. The project will plant native trees at and install bird boxes along Emu Creek and Sheepwash Creek, install a commemorative plaque and hold an event in honour of The Queen’s Jubilee. This will enhance the tree canopy and provide additional habitat for native fauna.

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.

A great turn out this morning for the Jubilee celebrations and unveiling of the commemorative plaque. The FOSSALs have done amazing work in the planting of 75 yellow box eucalyptus trees. Thanks to all attendees for sharing in the music, scones and specials stories and connections of special guest Marg Somerville to the late HRH Queen Elizabeth II.
