The Rotary Clubs of Bourne and Bourne St Peter get together to plant daffodil bulbs in Bourne, Morton and Haconby to celebrate the End Polio Now campaign




You may have noticed activity on the roadside verges in Bourne, Morton and Haconby.

The Rotary Clubs of Bourne and Bourne St Peter were out and about, armed with spades and brightly coloured jackets with the aim of planting purple crocus corms, in combination with Bourne St Peter’s annual planting of daffodil bulbs, to celebrate the ongoing Rotary ‘End Polio Now‘ Campaign.

This was highlighted in The Bourne Local as World Polio Day was on October 24.

The aim is to eradicate polio from the entire world and with Nigeria being declared polio free very recently, this only leaves pockets in Pakistan and Afghanistan to be resolved.

In the Spring the crocuses and daffodils will be in full bloom and will be there to remind people of how tragic this disease is and how this and other diseases can be overcome with the generosity of people
making donations.

Signs will be put up in the Spring to acknowledge the efforts of both Rotary Clubs in the town and the mass of purple and yellow flowers will remind people of how important the relief of suffering is to those in
other countries.
