PLANTING TO RAISE AWARENESS OF THE ROTARY FIGHT FOR A POLIO FREE WORLD.

From Stonehaven Rotary Club –

Two million Ruby Giant Purple crocus corms were available this year in batches of 4000 bulbs and these have all been bought by Rotary clubs throughout the UK – including Stonehaven Rotary Club.

Usually the Club  involves the local schools in the crocus project but that was not possible this year because of COVID. So it was up to Rotary members to get them planted!

We wanted them to make a splash of colour in the town adding to the colour of all the planting that the Stonehaven Horizon Project does. We all appreciate the work of this group to improve our town and the Rotary Club asked for their support to get them in.

One place Rotarians wanted people to see them is at the welcome stone at Stonehaven Railway Station. The grounds of Kincardine Community Hospital was the other place, to give the patients and dialysis unit users something to brighten their day.

On Thursday, Rotary club members and Horizon volunteers met up to plant the crocuses. Everyone is all looking forward to seeing them in the spring – something to look forward to next year. Thank you Horizon for your support!
