Celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee
Earlier this year, on 6 February this year, Her Majesty The Queen became the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years of service to the people of the United Kingdom, the Realms and the Commonwealth.
To celebrate this unprecedented anniversary, events and initiatives will take place throughout the year, culminating in a four-day UK bank holiday weekend from Thursday 2 to Sunday 5 June.
The Trust shall be raising its union jack flags across its sites from 30 May to mark the start of the Jubilee week.
We have also already planted 4000 trees near Rampton Hospital as part of the Queen’s Green Canopy. Find out more about the Queen’s Green Canopy.
Our services will be celebrating in their own way with patients to mark this milestone including our Highbury Community Gardens at Highbury Hospital who will be celebrating with a garden party on 1 June, joined by community partners including Bulwell Councillors and local MP Alex Norris. Later in the afternoon staff and inpatients will celebrate with a Jubilee style event, afternoon teas and a variety of stalls.
