In 1985 Rotary International launched a campaign to rid the world of Poliomyelitis. Now, some 30 years later, Rotarian volunteers from across the world including the UK, have inoculated millions of children in countries across Africa and Asia (specifically Afghanistan and Pakistan), and the task is almost complete.

In support of this campaign, and to help with the final push towards complete elimination, Huddersfield Rotary Club commandeered a flower bed in Ravensknowle Park and in November 2017 planted out approx 3000 purple crocuses – the adopted emblem of the campaign.

The fruits of their labour  came into view last week, despite the snow and cold weather, and on Tuesday 20th March a photocall was arranged to record the display.

We invite anyone who is visiting the Park to stroll up the right hand side of Tolson Museum,  read the poster in the Museum window,and enjoy the spectacle.

Shown from the left are President Julian Holdroyd, Vice President Ann Denham, and Rtn Ian Fillan. The photograph was taken Rtn Chris Naylor.
