Purple 4 Polio Crocuses
Our club supports Rotary's "End Polio Now" project and to this end we have acquired crocus corms, proceeds from the sale of which go to the project's funds
60 pupils at Whitehill JMI School, Hitchin, assisted by their teachers and members of Hitchin Priory Rotary Club, planted 3,000 crocus corms on the school's playing field.
The children took a great interest in the project and hugely enjoyed the task they enthusiastically took part in
When they appear next Spring, the purple flowers will display on a sloping corner of the field, visible to people and traffic passing on the adjoining road.
The project "End Polio Now" aims to eradicate polio worldwide. To date this has been achieved in all parts except for Pakistan and Afghanistan, wherre efforts continue to meet the target.
