Children plant bulbs


One of the children

AROUND 70 children from primary schools across Chichester have been busy bringing some flower power to the city’s Priory Park thanks to a bulb planting project to mark World Polio Day.

The planting took place to help highlight the Rotary International’s 32-year campaign to eradicate the disease polio.

The event was organised by Rotary Club of Chichester Priory in partnership with Chichester District Council’s Green Spaces team. Its gardeners helped prepare the ground.

The children planted 2,000 purple crocus bulbs around the park’s Sensory Garden for the international Purple4Polio campaign.
