Walnut tree planting at the Recreation Ground

To commemorate the centenary of the opening of the Recreation Ground a walnut tree grown by Maggie Dinning from a seedling donated by Milns Priscott was planted alongside the walnut tree planted in 2012 to commemorate the diamond jubilee of the late Queen.

The Recreation Ground was officially opened on Whit Tuesday 1923 by Mr John Hope-Simpson the Liberal MP for Milverton and Colonel Blunt head of the Royal British Legion Milverton branch.
