Saturday 24th October was World Polio Day.
To create awareness of Rotary’s contribution towards a polio-free world, last week we joined forces with Rotary in Amersham and Stony Dean School to plant 7,000 purple crocus corms on the verge opposite the Station in Chiltern Avenue.
Purple flowering crocus were chosen by Rotary to signify the purple dye painted on children’s pinkie fingers when immunised with the polio vaccine.
