Members of the Rotaract Club of Aberdeen joined with Members of the Rotary Club of Aberdeen Deeside to plant crocuses.

This was in support of Purple4Polio.  

It was touch and go whether the bulbs would get planted as the ground was quite frosted in places but with a bit of more youthful ebullience the Rotaracters applied a bit of "wellie" to get into the cold turf.   A fruitful hour was spent planting about 1,000 bulbs in the Darroch Park in Cults.   We wait for the spring to see the result of our labours.
