The Queen's platinum jubilee logoThe Queen's Copse

In 2022, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II 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 Her Majesty's 70 years of service, the Council created a sponsored tree planting scheme to create 'The Queen's Copse' within Abbey Meadows, Titchfield.

This specially created copse offers a secluded and protected wildlife habitat to encourage biodiversity in the area. Fareham residents, community groups, organisations, clubs and businesses have sponsored trees either for themselves, in memory of a loved one or on behalf of somebody.

Due to the popularity and high demand, a second area was identified to provide even more residents, community groups, organisations, clubs and businesses with the opportunity to sponsor a commemorative tree.  A further 80 trees were made available in 'The Platinum Copse' which will be situated in the south of the Abbey Meadows site. This site provides a second area of protected wildlife habitat to encourage biodiversity. 

Please note that no more trees are available at The Queen's Copse. 

However, there is still space available at The Platinum Copse if you would like to sponsor a tree. This will be planted in the next planting season later in 2023. Please contact if you are interested in sponsoring a tree.
