Planting Crocuses in support of Rotary’s ‘End Polio Now’ campaign
Rotary in Storrington & Pulborough District has been getting its green fingers working to turn part of Steyning Grammar School and Storrington Memorial Pond into purple blooming spectacles each spring
Members of Storrington & Pulborough District Rotary Club are planting 4,000 purple crocus corms which will be a colourful reminder each spring of the fight for a polio free world. They were joined by members of Steyning Grammar School’s Interact Club with their staff leader Tom Leighton and some lower school students at the School’s Rock Road site and helped by children from Storrington Primary School planting crocuses around the Storrington Memorial Pond.
Rotary Club President Mark Foss commented, “We’re proud to be planting these purple symbols of the Polio campaign and working with Storrington Primary Schoolchildren and Steyning Grammar School’s Interact Club makes it even more special. Only together can we end polio and we can all play our part in the continuing global efforts to eradicate the disease.”
