The Town Mayor, Cllr Lesley Howes, along with Town Councillors Emma Ben Moussa and Peter Harman joined Dartford Borough Council Leader, Cllr Jeremy Kite MBE and staff from both councils in planting 30 apple trees to form a community orchard in Swanscombe Park this morning.

This project has been undertaken as part of the borough wide Planet Dartford initiative, with this site being a partnership between Swanscombe and Greenhithe Town Council and Dartford Borough Council.

The trees themselves have been planted to form part of the Queens Green Canopy ahead of the Platinum Jubilee and have been funded from the Forestry Commission through the Urban Tree Challenge Fund. The area is scheduled to be completed in late March with the sowing of wildflowers seeds in the surrounding soil.
