Purple for polio planting goes ahead

Maisemore children were at last able to help Jeremy Chamberlayne plant purple crocus corms around the Queen Elizabeth Avenue marker stone.

The crocus planting is part of a Rotary International campaign - Purple for Polio - aimed at finally eradicating this disease.

The planting was due to take place earlier in the year, but was postponed because of the torrential rain.

Thanks to Hartpury School for allowing the children to take the time to be involved in this very worthwhile effort in their home village.

What a great thing to be doing - they will be reminded in the years ahead too!
