Bangor Rotary plants 4,000 crocuses for World Polio Day 2021

world polio dayIn recognition of World Polio Day on 24 October, Bangor Rotary Club, in association with the Ards and North Down Borough Council, has planted 4,000 crocus corms in the grounds of Castle Park, just outside the Walled Garden.

These will be a colourful reminder, when they bloom, of the fight for a polio-free world, part of Rotary International’s PolioPlus programme.

The colour purple has become symbolic of the fight, a reminder of the dye painted on a child’s finger to signify that they have received the vaccine.

Pictured planting the first corm is President Stephen, under the watchful eye of Dylan Freeburn of the Ards and North Down Borough Council together with Rotarians Ian Wilson, Raymond Boyd, Patrick Cregg, Margaret Francey and James O’Fee.
