It is a colourful campaign that is being backed by Lowestoft’s three Rotary clubs.

The town’s Rotarians are supporting the launch of the nationwide Purple4Polio campaign to rid the world of the disease by holding a series of events.

And last month, cubs from two packs in the Lowestoft district joined members of the Lowestoft South Rotary Club to plant purple crocus corms and help to brighten up areas across the town.

The enthusiastic youngsters from the 1st Pakefield and 1st Carlton Colville cub packs joined the Rotarians in planting the crocus corms at High Street and Yarmouth Road in Lowestoft.

It is part of the campaign to transform public spaces and brighten up the local community – with the areas set to bloom next spring.
