Mrs Narramore writes: To help the Rotary Club International's initiative to bring communities together to eradicate polio from the world, we went to Penryn's Memorial Garden to help plant purple crocus corms.

Along with Penryn Primary pupils, the gardening team from Cormac and Jim Henderson of the Rotary Club, four boys from Penryn College, Richard Heath, Jay Lloyd, Kieran Tucker and Max Hulley planted over a thousand crocuses. 

We been given 1500 crocuses by the Rotary Club to plant here at Penryn College, so if anyone is interested in lending a hand, we would definitely welcome the help!
