The Queen's Platinum Jubilee

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.

The Queen's Copse

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.

Visit the webpage to find out more.

The Platinum Copse 

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 opportunities to sponor a tree in the Platinum Copse.

The Queen's Green Canopy

In 2021, a unique nationwide tree planting initiative, 'The Queen's Green Canopy', was launched offering people across the United Kingdom the opportunity to "Plant a Tree for the Jubilee".

The initiative was due to conclude in December – the end of the Jubilee year. However, as the official tree planting season in the United Kingdom is from October to March, the initiative will now be extended to include the full tree planting season, beginning in October 2022 and concluding in March 2023.

You can find out more about this initiative on the website. External Hyperlink

Lighting of a Beacon

On Thursday 2 June 2022, more than 1,500 beacons were lit across the UK at 9.45pm and Fareham lit its own beacon from Portchester Castle. The free event, in partnership with English Heritage, and kindly sponsored by Everyone Active External Hyperlink, saw around 5,000 people come together and pay tribute to The Queen at this momentous time.

The Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Park

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.
