We are pleased to announce an Art Competition to accompany the crocuses that many Rotary clubs, Interact clubs, Rotakids clubs, schools and community groups planted before Christmas.

Many schools have helped Rotary Clubs to plant thousands of purple crocuses across our district in the last few months. Pupils are now invited to create a peice of artwork related to Rotary's Purple4Polio campaign. 
Help us to remind everyone that we have almost eradicated polio from the world.
