Crocus Planting for Polio Plus
Children from Victoria School assisted by Rotarians and Park Staff plant over 4000 Crocuses in Bellevue Park Wrexham
On Thursday Oct 20th children from Victoria Junior school joined Erddig Rotarians and WCBC Park Ranger
Alisdair Thomson to plat over 4000 crocus bulbs around the Band stand in Belle Vue Park. The children,from the school Eco-team and year 5 impressed the rotarians and the Ranger with their hard work and excellent behaviour.
The crocuses were planted to promote and celebrate the success of the ongoing "End Polio Now" campaign. The crocus is a flower which symbolises the story of the Polio Eradication Programme. It was chosen as the purple colour matched the dye painted on the fingers of children to show that they have been immunised.Erddig Rotary is heavily involved in fundraising to support the Global Polio Vaccination Programme, which over the last 25 years has saved millions of lives around the world.
The crocuses have been planted between trees all around the Bandstand and will hopefully provide a beautiful springtome display for many years to come.
