Managing director of Dandara Northern Home Counties, Simon Pendlebury, said: "We prioritise open green spaces and planting trees wherever possible at our developments, so we are pleased to have planted over 500 trees at our St Michael’s Park development in honour of this historic occasion.

"We hope our residents will enjoy the greenery around them.”
