Brookmans Park Rotary Club teamed up with local pupils to plant 5,000 crocus bulbs for World Polio Day.

The Rotary Club, led by president Alan Rice-Smith, Brookmans Park Primary School pupils and parish council members planted the bulbs on Friday, October 21 in Gobions Wood and Bradmore Green.

World Polio Day is on Monday, October 24, and the planting is part of a national initiative to plant five million bulbs across the UK that will flower in February 2017.

Rotary has been working over the last 30 years to rid the world of polio, which can kill or seriously disable children.
