In 2022, Her Majesty The Queen became the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, having acceded to the throne on the 6 February 1952 when she was just 25 years old.
Fareham has a history of recognising significant Royal milestones, so to commemorate this anniversary, we planned a series of community events and activities throughout 2022 within the Borough.
To celebrate Her Majesty's 70 years of service we created a sponsored tree planting scheme within Abbey Meadows, Titchfield.
The Queen's Copse will become a secluded and protected wildlife habitat to encourage biodiversity in the area, and Fareham residents, community groups, organisations, clubs and businesses sponsored trees either for themselves or in memory of a loved one.
Please note this area is now sold out.
Due to the popularity and high demand for The Queen's Copse tree planting scheme, a second area has been identified to provide even more residents, community groups, organisations, clubs and businesses with the opportunity to sponsor a commemorative tree.
There are still some opportunities to sponor a tree in the Platinum Copse.
To provide a lasting commemoration The Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Park was opened in honour of The Queen in 2022.
This space provides footpaths, cycle paths, wildlife habitats and dog walking areas, the Daedalus sculpture and commemorative seating. There is also an aviation-themed children's play area adjacent to the entrance of the park on Gosport Road.
