Rotary club members have planted thousands of flowers around Clevedon to highlight one of the world’s most infectious diseases.

Clevedon Yeo Rotary Club planted 5,000 crocus bulbs at a number of busy locations including Sixways and the ring road by Tesco in Kenn Road to raise awareness of polio.

Club president Tony Carrington said: “What a busy few weeks.

“Our members work extremely hard to improve the town, support local groups and organisations with a sense of fun and friendship.

“We are a small but vibrant club doing big things.”

The club has announced sponsorship of the Clevedon ladies’ rugby team who will play in kits bearing the Rotary logo.

It has also used money from a charity quiz night to donate to more than £1,000 to Clevedon District Foodbank.
