Bantock Blooming for End Polio Now

The crocus planted last Ocotber and in previous years in Bantock Park are in full bloom. Planted with the help of The Mayor of Wolverhampton Councillor Greg Brackenridge and children from Uplands Junior and Merridale Primary schools,they are the symbol of Rotary International’s campaign to eliminate

the scourge of polio from the world.

When the campaign started in 1988, there were over 1000 new cases throughout the world every day. To date in 2022, there has been only 1 case in Pakistan and 1 in Afghanistan.
