A ROYAL oak tree will be planted on Nettlebed common tomorrow (Saturday) to celebrate the Queen’s diamond jubilee.

The tree, named Elizabeth, will be planted at noon and will replace a tree planted in 1897 to mark Queen Victoria’s diamond jubilee.

Retired parish clerk Doreen Elms, who served in the role for 30 years, will lay it in the ground. Its roots will be wetted with beer from the Loddon brewery in Dunsden Green by the brewery’s director Chris Hearn.
