Planting for the Future

Today I joined fellow councillors and the local Rotary club to plant 2500 purple crocus bulbs in Woodford Park, Woodley. This will hopefully make the park look lovelier in the Spring but also supports the Rotary club’s End Polio campaign. Apparently Nigeria, Afghanistan and Pakistan still have cases of polio and I would love for the disease to be eradicated in my lifetime. Much progress has been made since the late 1980s and the purple crocuses planted all over the world by Rotary members and supporters is meant to encourage discussion of polio. They’re all purple because in developing countries people get a finger marked purple when they have been vaccinated. I also got to hear about all the brilliant things the local Rotary club does with charity fundraising and socialising. A fantastic organisation ding great things locally.
