Purple4Polio – First Celebration of the year




A small group of volunteer corm planters met on Thursday 15th March to welcome the first flowering of purple crocus.  These had been planted at the Fairfield Health Centre last Autumn. We were lucky to meet up between the major and minor  “Beast from the East”.  There was a good show this year, but the ones planted last year were looking glorious.  

A representative from The Rotary joined us.  Purple4Polio is a project that they, in conjunction with a range of community groups, have supported for a number of years.  The aim is the worldwide eradication of polio.  For more information about this project see the Purple4Polio tab on the website.

Linked in with CCG, More crocus corms were planted at local schools and by The Central Charlton Residents Association.  We await news of how they have all fared.
