Tree planting to celebrate 10 years of the Minehead Group
On 4 December 2012, members of the Minehead AI group gathered in the Parks Walk, Minehead. The occasion was the planting of a tree by the Chair of West Somerset Council (and Amnesty member) Doug Ross to mark the group's 10th birthday and also the 50th anniversary of the founding of Amnesty International. A special plaque records these facts. The species of tree - crataegus prunifolia - was specially chosen so that we can enjoy flowers in the spring and colourful foliage in the autumn.
