As part of the West Mercia Police and Crime Commissioner’s commitment to a more sustainable environment, he is planting a number of trees, as part of the Queens Green Canopy initiative.

The trees across Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Shropshire and Telford will help to reduce to impact of policing on the environment, commemorate the Queen’s 70th year on the Throne, and mark the passing of Prince Philip.

Commissioner John Campion said “I am committed to reducing the environmental impact on policing, and this is great project which will improve our environment, in a sustainable way for generations to come. Police officers are servants of the crown, so it’s important to commemorate The Queen, as she makes history as the first Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, and to pay tribute to Prince Phillip’s legacy. As Commissioner I join others across West Mercia and up and down country, in planting these trees as a symbol of hope and faith in the future”

Scoping work is underway, in partnership with West Mercia Police, to determine how many trees will be planted and the locations for them when they are planted this Autumn.
