Dogmersfield Primary School Supports Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire in Pledge to Plant 10 Million Trees.
Children of Dogmersfield Primary School were invited to the beautiful grounds of Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire to plant an oak sapling in honour of a very special anniversary pledge.
Last year, in celebration of 50 years, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts marked its milestone anniversary with a pledge to plant 10 Million Trees, a long-term global initiative that will form the cornerstone of the company?s commitment to supporting sustainability.
?For 50 years, our company logo has depicted the annual cycle of a tree, and as we look to the future, its symbolism will translate into concrete action,? says Kathleen Taylor, president and CEO, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. ?In cultures throughout the world, trees represent growth, prosperity and longevity. Trees nourish, and through their beauty, inspire hope for the future. 10 Million Trees is an exciting new program that will have a lasting and positive impact for generations to come.?
Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire is taking part in this commitment and involving the local community in planting oak saplings on the Estate. After learning about the history of Dogmersfield Park, the top school class at Dogmersfield Primary School completed history projects on the Victorian era and submitted drawings to Four Seasons. Two lucky winners, James Darnell and Niamh Forster, were selected to lead the tree planting ceremony alongside the rest of their classmates.
This tradition follows a history of kings and queens at Dogmersfield Park as, not long before she was Queen, Princess Elizabeth visited the Estate when it was Reed?s School in 1946 and planted an oak sapling grown from an acorn planted by Isabel Lady Mildmay who took the seed from an oak tree planted in the grounds four centuries ago by Queen Elizabeth I.
The ceremonies continued as all the children later enjoyed officially opening the Hotel?s new activity playground Henry?s Hangout, named after Henry the VIII.
