The Royal Elm

This is very easy to overlook, and even more so since the identifying plaque was first damaged and then completely removed. It's a small sapling, staked up near to the former bowls pavilion on the northern side.



The plaque looked like this:



The text reads:


This Royal Elm

was planted by

Lord Lieutenant Mr Peter Field

on 16th March 2012

in celebration of the

Queens Diamond Jubilee


Organised by Rotary Clubs

of the City of Brighton & Hove


All that now remains is the wooden backing of the plaque. I first noticed that all that remained was the bottom right hand corner; and a few weeks later not even that was left. Should it be replaced, I hope that the punctuation will be corrected!
