While most people have been huddling up at home during the cold and dark winter months, hardy Swanage Rotarians have been busy trying to add a splash of colour around the area.
Hundreds of crocus corms have been planted, and despite the unwelcome visit of the ‘Beast from the East’ (twice!), they are now in bloom and adding a riot of purple to many areas of the town.
It’s all part of the ‘Purple for Polio’ campaign, an International Rotary project aimed at raising both awareness and much needed funds to help eradicate this terrible disease from the world. We are so close now, only two countries still have the disease uncontrolled, and a final push is required to complete the job.
