Knaresborough Rotarians have been busy planting some of the 8000 purple crocus bulbs they are planning to plant in and around Knaresborough this October.
Today it was at the Linden Homes ‘Castlegate’ estate on the A59 and we would like to thank them for accommodating us.
We're also hoping to get to Great Ouseburn Primary school soon and have already planted some at the site further along the A59. We have previously planted crocuses at many local primary schools, so your children may be able to tell you about them.
Next Saturday we will be showcasing some of Rotary's International projects at the Wesley Chapel in Harrogate and will have some bags of 10 purple crocuses for the bargain price of £1 if you'd like to support our projects and have a lovely display of your own. There will also be some refreshments on offer.
Rotary plants purple crocuses to raise awareness of Rotary's campaign, as the purple crocus resembles the purple dye used on children's fingers to show children have received the vaccine. We've seen how easily polio can come back if we let our guard down this year, our aim is to make polio only the second disease eradicated by vaccination and public health measures since small pox.Monday 24th October is World Polio Day
