24th October was World Polio Day. Rotary International took up the “End Polio Now” challenge in 1985 to eradicate Polio Worldwide and RIBI (Rotary International in Great Britain & Ireland) President Eve Conway recently partnered TV Presenter Konnie Huq in two key events on 24th & 26th October at the London Science Museum and the London Press Club raising awareness of our motto :-
PURPLE 4 POLIO
The Purple Crocus has become the emblem of this work, the colour of the dye used to mark one finger of the 2.5 billion children who have been immunised. With only 13 cases of the disease reported this year, eradication is closer than ever.
We are grateful to Local schools and the Culcheth & District Horticultural Society for their assistance with crocus planting. The splash of colour which will appear in the Spring will remind us all of this cause. The photograph shows children from Culcheth Community Primary School, assisted by Horticultural Society and Club members, planting crocus corms in Culcheth in a grassed area by the junction of Withington Avenue and Warrington Road. Watch out for similar activity in the next weeks opposite the Nwe Inn in Culcheth, alongside the Croft playing field and in the grounds of Winwick Church as our school children work to brighten spring time in our district.
Why not join Rotary in these causes, putting something back into Society. Call Bernard Groom on 01925 733893 or check out the Rotary 1285 web site. We are also on twitter and facebook
