Colourful reminder of polio campaign
SPLASHES of colour can be seen around North Somerset thanks to the hard work of Rotary club members.
Across the district, verges, roundabouts and public spaces are a little brighter due to the thousands of crocus bulbs that were planted by the groups as part of a campaign aimed at eradicating polio worldwide.
It is hoped that each time the bulbs flower, people will be reminded of the cause.
A Rotary spokesman said: “While polio may be seen as a disease that has been eliminated, in certain areas of the world it still causes problems.
“The planting is there to remind everyone of this.”
