Members of the Rotary Club planted crocuses outside Royston Golf Club as part of a campaign to end polio.

The bulbs were planted earlier this month by a working party comprised of five Rotarians, two golf club members and a representative each from The Conservators of Therfield Heath and The Friends of Therfield Heath.


Working between rain showers, they planted more than 3,500 purple bulbs, which are expected to bloom next spring.

The crocuses show support for Rotary International's End Polio Now campaign, which aims to rid the world of the disease.

As a founding partner of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, Rotary has been working to reduce polio since their first project to vaccinate children in the Philippines in 1979.
