The Queen's Green Canopy

Burton-in-Kendal Parish Council presented (on 30th March) the pupils of Burton Morewood Primary School a fruit tree to plant and grow to mark the Platinum Jubilee of Elizabeth II. 

The Queen’s Green Canopy is a tree planting initiative created to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee this year. This will create a network of individual trees, avenues, copses and whole woodlands in honour of The Queen’s service and the legacy she has built. Every tree planted brings benefits for people, wildlife and climate, now and for the future. 

Tree planting is an incredible way for youngsters to connect with nature while helping the planet. It links to many areas of the curriculum and it’s fun. 

We hope the children enjoy watching their trees grow and enjoy the fruit.

Parking in Burton


Burton-in-Kendal Parish Council is seeking information.

The Parish Council is looking into solutions to the parking problems some residents encounter in the Village.

Although the Parish Council does not own any land there is a possibility of a potential car parking facility for anyone who is currently struggling to park their vehicle or vehicles.

This is in the very early stages and to move it forward the Parish Council needs to make sure there is sufficient need.

There would a cost to users and it would be approximately £250-£300 per annum.
