POLIO

In recent years, to mark the advanced stages of the work of immunisation, a new name (End Polio Now) was introduced, and a new symbol adopted, to draw attention to the Cause and as a visual reminder of the huge progress to date.

The planting of deep, purple-coloured crocus corms, was planned to bloom to coincide with World Rotary Day on 24 March each year.

The 2023-24 Rotary Day at UNESCO will be held on 4 May 2024 in Paris, France, with a focus on education and peace.

    Crocus1 Crocus2  

This year we planted crocus around "The Jubilee Oak Tree"  planted in 2012

Why Purple?

The purple crocus is a symbol of Rotary’s worldwide campaign to eradicate polio, with its colour representing

The dye (Gentian Violet) used to mark the left little finger of a child who has been immunised.  

A lifesaving oral polio vaccine costs just 20p
