Spring each year sees a beautiful purple carpet of crocuses blooming in many communities across Great Britain and Ireland thanks to the Purple Crocus Corm planting to raise awareness of the Rotary fight for a polio free world.  

As a part of this awareness campaign, Farnborough Rotary Club have just planted purple crocus corms in the flower boxes at North Camp station.  

Why Purple? When a child receives their life-saving polio drops on mass polio immunisation days, their little finger is painted with a purple dye so it is clear they have received their polio vaccine.
