Purple crocus are now in full bloom across the town.
In a joint project with Faversham in Bloom, crocus were added to the planters around the trees in the central car park. Rotarians and FiB volunteers prepared the ground and planted the corms in the autumn and they are now in flower.
FiB made a generous donation to Rotary’s Purple4Polio campaign which aims to eradicate polio worldwide through its immunisation programme.
There are several other areas in the town where Rotary and local gardening groups have planted purple crocus over recent years, including outside Age UK in Crescent Road and on Abel’s Acre in Forbes Road.
St Mary of Charity and Davington school pupils have also planted purple crocus in their school grounds, following talks from Rotarians about polio and the Purple4Polio crocus campaign.
