Taylor Wimpey helps Bilston Community Garden ‘grow’

Taylor Wimpey East Scotland has provided Bilston Community Garden with 30 trees to plant to mark The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

The donation supports this growing community garden’s involvement in The Queen’s Green Canopy, a unique tree planting initiative created to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee this year which invites people from across the United Kingdom to “Plant a Tree for the Jubilee”.

Donna Hogg, volunteer at Bilston Community Garden, said: “The historical significance of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee marks a moment in time which our local community are unlikely to experience again. I would like to thank Taylor Wimpey East Scotland for their generous donation, which will further enhance our work to transform this little corner of Bilston for the whole community.

“Planting 30 trees in our community garden in Bilston is also a lovely way for us to be part of the national Queen’s Green Canopy project, and for us to nurture and support these trees as they grow for the enjoyment of the local community for many years to come. The children who took part in our community planting event at the weekend really enjoyed getting involved.”

Taylor Wimpey East Scotland said it is proud to have made this donation of significant value both now and in the future.

Kirsty McGill, sales and marketing director, added: “We are delighted to be able to support Bilston Community Garden to be part of The Queen’s Green Canopy. Being able to work
with local businesses and organisations that surround our developments means a great deal to us and it’s great to know that we are making contributions that go directly to making a difference to the lives of people in local communities.”
