Crocus Bulb Planting on the Stray

Children from six Harrogate schools will be teaming up with The Rotary Club of Harrogate on Tuesday 1 November to plant 8,000 crocus bulbs on the Stray. The planting is part of Purple4Polio, the Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland’s (RIBI) campaign to eradicate polio across the globe. One strand of the campaign is a partnership between RIBI and the Royal Horticultural Society, with Rotary clubs joining forces with the RHS’s community-based Bloom Groups and others to work together to brighten up local areas and promote health and wellbeing by planting 6 million crocus corms across the country.
