Angmering schools given tree and plants to mark the Queen's Platinum Jubilee

The three schools in Angmering were each given a tree and bedding plants to mark the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, along with a commemorative plaque.

The tree planting was funded by Angmering Parish Council, alongside £5,000 worth of grants for local businesses, clubs, groups and associations to organise jubilee events.

The Angmering School, St Margaret's CE Primary School and St Wilfrid's Catholic Primary School were delighted to receive the donation.
