BISHOP'S Waltham will be more purple than ever this spring.

To celebrate the success and to raise awareness of Rotary's End Polio Now campaign, the village club has planted crocuses.

The purple represents the ink used to mark Africans who have been immunised to the disease.

A spokesperson for Bishop's Waltham Rotary Club said: "In the last couple of weeks before we went back into lockdown, several of the club were out planting purple crocuses to promote our work towards eradicating polio.

"We hope that in the spring we will have a good display of purple crocuses in the shape of the Rotary logo appearing around the area in both Bishop’s Waltham at the junction of Free Street and the Corhampton Road, and Fair Oak by the new Parish Offices, these will add to the crocuses planted in previous years at both the Bishop’s Waltham junior and infant schools and on the bank by the corner of Hoe Road and Willow Road at the Cricklemede Roundabout."
