The Rotary Club of Wilmslow Dean are hoping for a wonderful spring display in the town having purchased 5000 purple crocus bulbs to be planted in and around Wilmslow to raise awareness about polio eradication across the world.
Members of Wilmslow Dean Rotary have planted 1200 at the corner of Chapel Lane and Bedell Lane, with the help of Wilmslow in Bloom members, and nine local schools are supporting their campaign by planting the rest so they are in bloom next spring.
Schoolchildren plant crocuses to help Rotary's polio campaign spring to mind.
Mr B Lavagna-Slater, Headteacher at Wilmslow Prep School, said "Kindergarten & reception children were delighted to receive & plant the giant crocus at the entrance to the school. They gave each bulb a name. During assembly they spoke about the important work WDRC we're doing to support the campaign to end Polio."
Miss Zoe Wilson, Headteacher at Lindow Primary School, said "Our after school club planted the crocus in front of the school. They researched Rotarys polio campaign and the children have written about it."
