In November volunteers from Marlborough in Bloom and the Garden Association planted almost 5000 Crocus corms as part of the Rotary and RHS Purple4Polio campaign.

Now we can see the fruit (or flowers) of their labour in several places around Marlborough including Priory Gardens,pictured below, the Waterfront garden, Salisbury road Roundabout and the Green.

For over 30 years Rotary and its members worldwide have been committed to fighting to eradicate polio across the world.
The Royal Horticultural Society has joined forces with community gardening groups and Rotary clubs around the UK in promoting the 'Purple4Polio' campaign and have worked together to plant millions of Crocus tommasinianus to create a spectacular carpet of purple in the spring. The Purple crocus is a symbol of Rotary's 'Purple4Polio' initiative, with its colour representing the purple dye used to mark the finger of a child who has been immunised.

So on cold wet days in mid-November,  volunteers representing Marlborough in Bloom, Rotary and the Marlborough Gardening Association have planted over 3,500 crocus bulbs in Manton and Marlborough to add a purple splash of colour and vibrancy to our town next spring.  Crocuses are being planted on The Green, Kennet Place Waterfront, Salisbury Road Roundabout and Priory Gardens.

Many congratulations to our chairman Anne Crawley, who has become Marlborough’s Citizen of the Year for 2016.  Anne has chaired the Marlborough in Bloom committee and worked tirelessly to encourage and promote the ‘greening’ of Marlborough, from which we have all reaped the benefits as our town has flowered over the past few summers.
