of busy Burnham-On-Sea road burst into Spring colour
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 Burnham-On-Sea.com.
"The bulbs were planted as part of Rotarys 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 Burnham-On-Sea.com
