Skegness Railway Station Community Project

2,000 crocus bulbs planted around the Skegness railway station.

On Thursday the 16th November, Students and Staff from Kime House at The Skegness Academy joined Rotarians from the Rotary Club of Skegness and Caroline Sharpe from Skegness Station to plant the crocusses.

The planting of crocuses is to help raise awareness for the "End Polio" project supported by Rotary International and The Bill Gates Foundation. Globally Rotary has worked alongside other agencies to eradicate this terrible disease and we are almost there! The colour purple is used as this is the colour babies in poorer and remote areas of the world are given to show they have been immunised.

Hopefully the Skegness Railway Station will be in purple bloom early spring and the pupils and staff from the Academy will see the fruits of their labours.
