Crocuses planted to support Polio campaign

by Editor

Next spring, a carpet of purple crocuses will be popping up outside Lime House Care Home on Newton Road, Lowton.

400 bulbs have been planted across Lowton by local volunteers to support the End Polio Now Campaign.

The purple crocus is the symbol of the campaign by Rotary, which has raised more than £1,250,000 which has been distributed around the world.

Members of the Lane Head South Residents Group have been busy planting the purple crocuses outside Lime House and also around Lane Head, too.

So come next spring, these cheerful little flowers will hopefully put a smile on the face of passers by, and remind us of a very worthwhile cause, too.
