A Norfolk MP has joined a national initiative to mark the Queen's commitment to the Commonwealth - by planting trees.
Broadland MP Keith Simpson took part in the Queen's Commonwealth Canopy project at John Bears Nursery in Aylsham, on Friday, November 2.
During the visit, at 10am, Mr Simpson planted two silver birch trees, two rowan trees and a hazel tree, donated by the Woodland Trust, Sainsbury's and ITV.
More than 500 MPs will plant trees as part of the project, a network of forest conservation initiatives to mark the Queen's service to the Commonwealth.
Woodland Trust Chief Executive Beccy Speight said:
