Children plant more Crocus Corms for 'End Polio Now'
Children from the Norton-in-Hales village school planted more corms at their local St.Chads church to enhance the purple crocus display from earlier in the year. The corms, donated by our club, when in flower will provide a wonderful show of purple and be an excellent reminder of the 'End Polio Now' project.
