Where should King’s tree be?

1 min read

Island residents are being asked to help find the right location to plant a tree to commemorate the coronation of King Charles III.

Susie Sheldon, Lord-Lieutenant of the Isle of Wight, said: “I would like to invite our Island residents to vote and tell us where they would like to see His Majesty King Charles III coronation tree planted.

“We have suggested two suitable sites, which are Northwood House Park and Appley Park, but we are also keen to hear your suggestions. Once the vote has taken place and we have our location winner, we can choose a tree that best suits that area.”

Voting for where the tree should be planted is now open and closes at noon on Wednesday (November 22).

Chairman of the council, Cllr Claire Critchison, said: “Planting this tree will leave a lasting legacy for our community and it’s great that Island people can help pick where that will be.”

Casting a vote is quick and easy — simply visit and choose your favoured spot or make a suggestion.
