Kings Hill turns purple for polio

Kings Hill turns purple for polio

A carpet of purple crocuses has appeared at Kings Hill to highlight the devastating effects of one of the world’s most feared diseases.

Now in full bloom, the ‘Ruby Giant’ bulbs were planted by Kings Hill Rotary Club and Kings Hill developer Liberty Property Trust in October, as part of the Rotary Club’s ‘Purple4Polio’ campaign.

The purple crocus is a symbol of the Rotary Club’s worldwide campaign to eradicate polio with the colour representing the purple dye used to mark the finger of a child who has been immunised.

Pictured are Liberty’s Wendy Smitherman (centre) with (L-R) Kings Hill Rotary Club’s Janet Tootal, Lynne Selman, Wendy Curtis and Patrick Tootal.
