A COMMEMORATIVE tree was planted to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

Members of Easington Lane Community Access Point came together to plant the tree to celebrate Her Majesty’s 60 year reign

Michelle Bains, from Easington Lane Community Access Point said: “It was a great day and it all went really well.

“We got our president Harold Watson, to plant it and we had the Mayor and Mayoress of Hetton come along as well.”

“It means quite a lot to us. At the Access Point we are very big on heritage and history,” said Michelle, 45, from Easington.

Hetton Coun Allen and Doreen Maddison watched Harold Watson plant the tree, which was a flowering cherry tree.

“The other tree was planted by the Queen Mother when she visited the area about 50 years ago.

“It’s quite symbolic to have this tree planted beside it,” added Michelle.

The access point offers a number of services for the community including free internet access, childcare and training and education opportunities.
