Latest news from the Watford Group - December 2011
Symbol of Hope
The sun shone and we had an encouraging group of supporters when Watford’s elected Mayor, Dorothy Thornhill, planted an oak tree in Cassiobury Park on Wednesday, 23rd November to mark Amnesty’s 50th anniversary. There is a photo in Friday’s Watford Observer (25th November).
The Mayor said she was pleased that her Community Fund could finance the tree to mark Amnesty International’s 50th anniversary and draw attention to the plight of many people in the world who are suffering torture and abuse. She described Watford Amnesty Group as “our conscience” for the people of Watford. After the ceremony she joined us in the Cafe Cha Cha Cha and signed a petition on behalf of the people of West Papua.
