TAYLOR Wimpey East Scotland has revealed it has donated £1,000 to support the completion and maintenance of the new urban woodland site planted at Nelson Park in Armadale as part of The Queen’s Green Canopy project.

The project is intended to mark The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. The donation to West Lothian Council’s delivery partner, Green Action Trust, will support the local authority’s investment in the tree planting initiative.

Gillian Barrie, development officer for Green Action Trust, who led the team delivering the Nelson Park planting for West Lothian Council, said, “The historical significance of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee marks a moment in time which our local communities are unlikely to experience again. I would like to thank Taylor Wimpey East Scotland for their generous donation, which will provide for some final planting and future maintenance of this new urban woodland site for the enjoyment of the whole community both now and in the future.”

Pauline Mills, Taylor Wimpey East Scotland’s land and planning director, added, “We are delighted to be able to support Green Action Trust and West Lothian Council’s efforts at Nelson Park, which forms part of The Queen’s Green Canopy. Being able to work with businesses and organisations near our developments both new and historical means a great deal to us, and we are pleased to know that we are making contributions that go directly to making a difference to the lives of people in local communities.”
