Carol Jones, chairman of Horncliffe Parish Council, purchased an oak tree to be planted on the Horncliffe Playing Field in her personal capacity.

Anne-Marie Trevelyan was joined by Norham and Islandshires county councillor Colin Hardy and Stuart Birkett, a Deputy Lord Lieutenant of Northumberland.

The MP said: “It was wonderful to join Horncliffe residents, including parish councillors, for the planting of the Jubilee Oak alongside Coun Hardy and also Mr Birkett.
