The Lord-Lieutenant had the absolute pleasure of joining veteran, Peter Topley, in the planting of a tree at the RBLI in Maidstone to celebrate the RBLI being given the opportunity to manufacture the plaques for The Queen’s Green Canopy. The Queen’s Green Canopy project will have an unprecedented positive environmental impact, creating new areas of greenery across the UK. The creation of the plaques by the RBLI will see vital employment opportunities provided to disadvantaged veterans through the RBLI’s wonderful work. Veterans are making these beautiful steel plaques so people, companies and organisations can mark their contribution to The Queen’s Green Canopy and the Lord-Lieutenant would like to encourage everyone in Kent to get involved.
