The 2,500 purple crocuses
planted last November by the Rotary Club of Senlac on the Little Common
roundabout are now in full bloom. Over 7 million purple crocuses were planted
by Rotarians across the country as part of Rotary International’s Purple4Polio campaign to eradicate polio
worldwide. Press Officer for Senlac Rotary, Colin Goldsack, said, “I am really
delighted that our club has been part of this massive international campaign
which has seen the number of new polio cases across the world falling from 1000
reported cases a day in the 1980s to less than 75 in 2015.
