FPC have already planted 3 oak trees in Fillongley Recreation Ground as part of The Queens Green Canopy.  These trees were grown in the Parish and donated by Mrs Stella Antrobus.  Thanks also to Mr William Antrobus and Mr Kevin Kerby, who, with the help of some heavy farm machinery transplanted the trees to the Recreation Ground.  These will be dedicated in a ceremony to be announced…..
