World Polio Day

To create awareness of Rotary’s contribution towards a polio-free world, the Town Council joined forces with Rotary in Amersham and Stony Dean School to plant 8,000 purple crocus corms on the verge beside the roundabout at the Boot & Slipper.


Purple flowering crocus were chosen by Rotary to signify the purple dye painted on children’s pinkie fingers when immunised with the polio vaccine.
