Verges of busy Burnham-On-Sea road burst into Spring colour

Verges along the main route into Burnham-On-Sea have burst into colour, thanks to the volunteer work of two local groups.

Members of Burnham Rotary Club and Burnham Scout Group planted 200 crocus bulbs along Queens Drive donated by Sanders Garden World last autumn and now the fruits of their work is showing.

"The blue and purple crocuses are blooming by the Jubilee Stones on The Queens Drive," Burnham Rotary Club's Stuart Adams told

"The bulbs were planted as part of Rotary’s drive to eradicate Polio throughout the world by immunising children in the few remaining countries where Polio is still rife. To signify that a child has been immunised, a little finger is dyed purple and the crocus bulbs will bloom every year to remind everyone that support is still needed."

He added that the work that Burnham Rotary Club does is growing every year and that it is looking for new members to keep the momentum going. To help, you can get in touch with here and we will pass on your message.
