Purple Crocuses

October 18, 2019

We were delighted to have teamed up with The Minster On Sea Rotary Club and Sheppey College to plant 2000 purple crocuses in a roundel at Queenborough Station this morning. Kent CRP have been working with Sheppey College over the last year on numerous activities. This is the first landscaping project undertaken. The significance of the purple crocus bulb is to help raise awareness of the eradication of the Polio virus. People who have received a vaccination against polio have their finger nail marked purple. Rotary International having been working around the world since 1979 to try and eradicated the polio virus. Hopefully today, Kent CRP, Minster on Sea Rotary Club and Sheppey College have helped to further raise awareness. We are now all looking forward to Spring.
