Amnesty Tree at the Minehead Christmas Tree Festival
Each year, our group puts up an 'Amnesty Tree' at the annual Christmas Tree Festival in the Methodist Church in Minehead. The 2012 festival took place between 5 and 9 December and started with an evening opening ceremony on the Wednesday and closed with a special service on the Sunday morning. The theme of the festival was 'celebrations' and our tree attracted lots of favourable comments. By the tree, we left case sheets taken from the Write for Rights campaign booklet and hope that a number of visitors took these home and sent off greetings cards.
