Purple for Polio

Purple for Polio


Several buildings in and around Altrincham were given a purple hue to celebrate Rotary's continuing dedication to making the world polio-free.

Included in these are the Bowdon Community Rooms which also carries a plaque in recognition of the fact that in 1929 this was where Altrincham Rotary Club met for the first time.
