Queen Thanks Old Hardyeans For Jubilee Tree

(Updated 12:07pm 21st August 2012)

The Queen's sent a letter of thanks after a tree was planted in Dorchester's Borough Gardens to commemorate her Diamond jubilee.

A Red Cascade tree was planted on behalf of Old Hardyeans, the old boys of Hardye's school and Dorchester Grammar School.

They had written to congratulate her on her reign, and to send the Duke of Edinburgh best wishes earlier this year, following his first stay in hospital this year.
