Crocus Planting


Our Rotary club provided 2000 crocus bulbs for local children to plant at the Community Orchard


Half a dozen Rotarians, with the help Rob Hayworth (Ranger) and members of his team, prepared the ground for children to plant crocuses in the Community Orchard.

The children had been told about the disease of polio and the reason for the planting of crocuses, at an assembly earlier in the week.  

The school members of Elmwood Rotakids club joined with a few teachers and enjoyed putting bulbs in the trenches.  

When the children see the crocuses in bloom next February and March, they will think again about other children who have been saved from catching the terrible disease of polio.  We hope that there will be a beautiful display in Spring for all to enjoy.

We are grateful to the pupils of Elmwood school and members of staff, along with Rob and his team who made the arrangements and assisted on the day.
